This paper reports a longitudinal study of an advanced learner over a six months' stay in England under conditions of initial exposure to the L2 community.Fifteen interviews of an unstructured nature were conducted over the period, and these serve as a data base.Performance was analysed in five areas where the subject made frequent error in order to assess to what extent errors were eliminated and to what extent there might be evidence for the onset of fossilisation.
