L2 Pronunciation Research Workshop: Bridging the Gap between Research and Practice

6 - 7 June 2019

Barcelona, Spain

This workshop aims to bring together second and foregin language (L2) acquisition researchers interested in L2 pronunciation development from a variety of linguistic, psycholinguistic, cognitive and teaching perspectives. The L2 Speech research groups from the University of Barcelona (UB) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), under the auspices of the European Second Language Association (EuroSLA), would like to welcome you to the L2 Pronunciation Research Workshop, which will be held in Barcelona on the 6th and 7th of June, 2019.

The aim of the workshop is to promote discussion on how methods and findings from research on L2 speech, phonetic training and phonological acquisition can inform pronunciation teaching practice in instructed SLA. It also seeks to inspire empirical research on L2 pronunciation teaching and learning in the L2 classroom. We particularly welcome high-quality submissions for oral or poster presentations that report on original research aiming at bridging the gap between L2 phonetic training research in the lab and L2 pronunciation teaching and learning in the classroom. We also encourage submissions that examine specific empirical questions related to phonetic training, pronunciation instruction methods, pronunciation assessment and L2 phonological acquisition in instructed SLA.
