Early foreign language learning

In recent years, interest in teaching English to young learners has continuously increased, as has the interest in investigating the teaching and learning processes involved. In this context, issues such as the role of age in SLA, competence development in the classroom and the evaluation of programme implementation in different European countries represent major areas of research. Research conducted in this department focuses on issues such as

  • language use in learner-learner and teacher-learner interaction at primary school level
  • Task-based language teaching in the primary English classroom
  • the role of textbooks in the teaching and learning process
  • young learners’ grammatical development in the early stages of language acquisition
  • The role of formulaic sequences and creative language use in language production

Faculty members involved are:


We welcome inquiries from students and researchers with an interest in further study in these areas or collaborating on research projects.
