Dear ProZians,

I´m working on a thesis project and I was wondering if you know of a University or any other organization that works on and publishes their research on Native Language Interference and Second Language Adquisition.

The thesis theme that the University assigned me is: Native Language Interference in the Spoken Target Language.

I´ve already googled both topics and found some stuff, but if you know of something (En or Es) that you consider might be useful for me in this case, I´d appreciate if you can please share it with me.

Best regards,
Elena

What kind? I think “interference” should be elaborated there a little bit.

Reference books in English: L1 interference; interlanguage; second language acquisition May 6, 2009

Hello Elena

Re second language acquisition, I don't know what reference books you have already or have access to ...

Here is one I know of which might be helpful:
http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Language-Acquisition-Research-Linguistics/dp/0582553776#
And here is a dictionary which defines language teaching terms:
http://www.amazon.com/Longman-Dictionary-Language-Teaching-Linguistics/dp/0582072441#reader

Could your teachers help you out with a reading-list perhaps? ...

L1 interference in spoken language May 8, 2009

Hello again Elena

I see you are looking for information specifically on 'interference in spoken language'. Let us know how you get on, and if you would like any more suggestions. I do remember a good practical reference I found once which listed the specific things to look out for with each type of 'mother tongue'. How about asking again in the Teaching and Learning Languages forum ...

Hello lai an,

Thanks a lot for sending those references, they are useful indeed.

I have collected a few other links related to the main theme and related topics. I have not been able to go through all of them yet, but the ones I did were very helpful.
