Chris Bongartz and her assistants have several research projects in language and literacy development. Our main interests include research into Second Language Acquisition & Immersion, Morpho-Syntax and the field of World Englishes. We attend international conferences on theoretical and applied linguistics and participate in international research debates. We also organize summer schools, workshops and further events in linguistics and language learning.

Research focus:

• language immersion

• syntactic and morphological theory

• psycholinguistics (especially first and second language acquisition)

• language transfer

• multilingualism

• second language writing and (multi-)literacy

• language & philosophy

• language immersion

• successful integration of diverse classrooms

• the role of age in second language acquisition
