Symposium 14 & 15 February 2019: “Methods and approaches for investigating cross-linguistic influence in the foreign language acquisition of grammatical structures”

  • January 31, 2019

WHEN: 14 & 15 February 2019

WHERE: Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Campus Etterbeek) in room D.2.15.


This symposium, spanned over two half-day sessions, compares current and different methodological approaches dealing with cross-linguistic influence in the second language or foreign language acquisition of grammatical systems. It will be devoted more particularly, but not exclusively, to native language influences in the second language acquisition of grammatical gender. 

More specifically, it will gather junior researchers who will present their recent work and benefit from the feedback of an invited senior expert/discussant, Dalila Ayoun, from the University of Arizona. She will also provide a keynote speech on “the L2 acquisition of French gender and agreement: a longitudinal study”.
