Language learning, teaching and testing
Within the broader CLS mission, this research group focuses on (instructed) language acquisition in both second and foreign language contexts, taking the perspective of the language learner, language teacher and/or language tester. We study the content, role and effects of language learning, teaching and testing, which includes topics such as the (multimodal) pedagogy of foreign language learning, the optimization of learning outcomes, the role of cultural awareness in language teaching, and also topics as spoken or written patterns in the interlanguage of language learners. The methodologies we use include corpus research, experiments, surveys, fieldwork and qualitative analyses
