I spoke very briefly on this topic:
GU-FLIRT Advanced Learner Study: Data coming to the Web
In 1996, a crosslinguistic language acquisition study, was mounted
in order to profile intermediate and advanced learners within Georgetown
University's curriculum. Data were collected using parallel tasks, both
oral and written, from non-native speakers of eight languages: Spanish,
French, German, Korean, Japanese, ESL, Italian, and Catalan. Now, with the
support of Georgetown's Research, Curriculum, and Development Group, these
data are being prepared for dissemination via the Web. See the following
URL for a description of the study. When the data are ready for public
use, a link to a searchable and downloadable database will be available
from this URL, as well.
Funding for the original study was provided by the Office of the Executive
Vice President at Georgetown University.
