The University of Tübingen is pleased to host the LEAD Summer School in Second Language Acquisition in July 2018. The LEAD Summer School is a major international event that draws together leading researchers and students from a variety of disciplines (theoretical and applied linguistics, psychology, education, language testing) in order to discuss current trends and future directions in second language research.
The Summer School is an initiative of the Heritage Language Consortium, a new strategic partnership between Tübingen University, Lancaster University, the University of Lisbon, the University of Minho, NOVA University of Lisbon, the University of Porto, and the Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The event free is offered free of charge but prior registration is required. Registration includes coffee breaks, a welcome reception (Monday) light lunch during Wednesday’s poster session, and a Stocherkahn trip up the Neckar river.
