Praktijkgerelateerd Contrastief Onderzoek Naar Vreemde-Taalverwerving
In this contribution we show that foreign language acquisition research does not only provide theoretical insights into the learning process of foreign languages, but also provides useful tips that are directly relevant to language teaching, especially if research is conducted with the 'integrated contrastive model'. We illustrate how the model can be applied in studies of the interlanguage of French-speaking learners of Dutch and Dutch learners of French concentrating on the phonological, morphological and pragmatic components of language. Finally, we explore possible classroom teaching activities and techniques that follow from our study.
