The course will be organized around three overaraching questions (as suggested by L. Ortega):
- How do humans learn additional languages after they have learned their first?
- What factors contribute to the variability observed in rates and outcomes of second language learning?
- What does it take to attain advanced language and literacy competencies in a language other than the mother tongue?
And one contextualizing question:
- What is the take on second language learning/acquisition in Latin America?
- Teacher: Miguel Farias Farias
