The Ph.D. Program in Second Language Acquisition and the Confucius Institute at the University of Maryland will host their first international conference on Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) on November 11 and 12, 2012 on the College Park campus. The past decade has witnessed a rapid growth in the learning and teaching of Chinese as a second language around the globe. Set in this context, this conference is intended to facilitate scholarly exchanges of research ideas and findings; encourage interdisciplinary collaborations, and promote research on the understanding of linguistic, psycholinguistic, and socio-cultural processes involved in the learning and teaching of Chinese as a Second Language (CSL). While all papers are welcome that are related to CSL learning and teaching, we are particularly interested in research that focuses on the following topics:

  • Pronunciation, vocabulary, and syntax acquisition by CSL learners
  • The development of listening, speaking, reading/literacy, and writing skills by CSL learners
  • Characterizing CSL learner language and competence
  • Psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic study of phonological, lexical, syntactic/sentence processing by non-native speakers of Chinese
  • Instruction and CSL acquisition
  • CSL in K-12
  • CSL in intensive and immersion programs
  • Language acquisition by Chinese heritage learners
  • CSL in Study Abroad contexts

Abstracts of 400-500 words in either English or Chinese on any topics related to CSL learning and teaching are welcome. Please send the abstracts to cslconference@umd.edu by May 31, 2012. The conference languages are English and Mandarin Chinese. More information about the conference and online registration will become available at http://www.umdcsl.umd.edu soon.
