Dear LinguistList community,

I am a PhD student trying to develop a new Spanish L3 (after English L2) teaching model for adult learners, basically Erasmus students, in a multilingual context.

The overwhelming literature I have found until now about third language acquisition/learning/teaching mostly deals with L3 acquired in lower education, rather than higher education, taking place in bilingual communities.

What my personal library still lacks is specific literature about adult L3 teaching-learning models, taking into consideration that the previous languages - student's L1 and English L2 - do not necessarily have been acquired simultaneously.

Therefore I would like you to contact me if you have any information about this issue.

Thank you so much.
