In this course, we discuss third language research and what it means for the teaching of a third language. The course is part of the master's programme in linguistics, but you can also study it as a free-standing course.
We process, evaluate and compare third language research, central theories and a selection of empirical studies in the field. We address various factors that are considered relevant to third language learning, use and development, such as age, motivation, multilingualism and various contextual factors. We then problematize language teaching approaches in relation to these factors.
