Overview

Applied Linguistics formulates theory and research-based solutions to real world language problems. It is an interdisciplinary field of enquiry that draws on linguistics, psycholinguistics, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics and education.

We take as our starting point practical issues such as "How can multilingualism be fostered in a society such as New Zealand?", "In what ways can classroom learners of foreign languages be motivated to learn?" and "How can language proficiency be fairly and validly assessed?" and seek research-based answers.
