Survey on Literacy and Language Acquisition E-mail this message to a friend
We have recently put together a COST Action. If you are unfamiliar with COST, see https://www.cost.eu/who-we-are/about-cost/
The Action aims to expand what we know about acquisition of a new language by adult migrants with no home language literacy (less than 4% of research in Europe and elsewhere involves non-literate adult second language learners).
Please see https://www.leslla.org/languages-of-leslla-learners
for a list of languages which such adults speak.
We are conducting a six-question survey to get a sense of what linguists, particularly (but not only) those who work on first and non-native language acquisition know and/or assume about the influence of literacy. Thanks in advance for taking it; here’s the link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TVYSGKY
