Call for papers for the EuroSLA-supported event “Intercomprehension-based L2 learning and teaching”

***********Call for Papers***********

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the international conference “Intercomprehension-based L2 learning and teaching” (University of Gdańsk (Poland) / online, 2-3 December 2022).

The conference focusses on the acquisition and teaching of second/foreign languages by speakers of genealogically and/or typologically close languages (L1 or L2). It is articulated into three non-parallel sessions, each devoted to a different perspective on the phenomenon of interest:

1. Second Language Acquisition perspectives
2. Language Teaching perspectives
3. Learning and teaching of L2 Polish

Sessions 1 and 2 welcome papers on any language family. Session 3 focusses exclusively on L2 Polish as an exemplar case study of L2 acquisition by speakers of closely related languages (East Slavic).

Invited speakers:
Elisabetta Bonvino, Università di Roma 3
Christof Heinz, Universität Leipzig
Katarzyna Bednarska, Uniwersytet Łódzki

A detailed call for papers and the abstract submission instructions can be found on the conference website:

A selection of the conference proceedings will be published as a special issue in an international peer-reviewed journal.

This initiative is generously supported by the European Second Language Association (EuroSLA).

Best regards,
Jacopo Saturno, Università di Bergamo

Przemysław Gębal, Politechnika Śląska / Uniwersytet Warszawski
