BAAL/Routledge Research Developmental Workshop 2017

Welcome to our Bilingual First Language Acquisition (BFLA): Current theories & methodologies developmental workshop website. Here you will find all the relevant and most up-to-date information about the workshop.

We are delighted to invite you to take part in the workshop either as a presenter or an attendee.  The workshop has been funded by the British Applied Linguistics Association (BAAL) in conjunction with Routledge.

The workshop takes place at the University of York, UK on the 4th and 5th December 2017. We look forward to welcoming you all in York and we might be lucky if we get some snow.

This developmental workshop provides a unique opportunity for those new to the field to learn and explore current and established theories about BFLA and it also allows those already part of the field to explore new directions and discuss their research with others. This is an exciting unique workshop that will be crucial for anyone working in BFLA to attend.
