General Information


The research school is an intellectual union in search of proper methods applicable to a multi-level phenomenon of foreign/second language acquisition. The program of the school embraces two sides of the definition of “method” understanding it as 1) research methods of the mechanisms of language acquisition and 2) as methods of language teaching informed by research results and applied in the classroom. Thus, the school brings together the most successful practices in languages teaching and the findings from experimental linguistics.

Providing a platform for fruitful discussion the school is aimed at elicitation the bidirectionality of the process of language teaching and acquiring/learning. To be more specific, the project answers the question how studies in language acquisition inform and shape language pedagogy, and, on the other hand, how the feedback from the application of most advanced teaching practices motivates further research and points to the understudied areas.
