Meeting Description: 

The current fast developments in China have led to an increase of the number of Chinese learners of English and other European languages as well as an increase of speakers of European languages learning Chinese. This emerging interest in learning and teaching Chinese all over the world has increased the demand for qualified research to support teaching of Chinese as a second language. For instance, in recent years, we have witnessed a significant increase of university students who study Chinese, and initiatives have been started to teach Chinese at secondary schools. Since Chinese and European languages greatly differ in their consonants, vowels, and prosody—let alone their different writing systems—second language acquisition into either direction is a difficult task.

Although there is a vast amount of literature on Chinese-accented English (discussing, for instance, typical Chinese pronunciations of English, including wrong stress placement), research on Chinese accent in other languages lags far behind. Similarly, foreign accented Chinese is hardly linguistically investigated. For example, Danish-accented Chinese has never been explored as a field of study. In addition, even for English, a thorough investigation of teachers' perception of the pronunciation of their students is still lacking.

This workshop is meant to investigate the state-of-the-art of second language acquisition in which Chinese is either the first language (L1) or the second language (L2) and to consider new lines of research.
