    Bilingualism and second language acquisition is one of the leading research areas at Stockholm University. Research at the Centre covers a number of profile areas:

    • Second language acquisition/Swedish as a second language
    • Minority languages, language policy and language ideology in Sweden
    • L1 attrition and reactivation
    • Interpretation (and translation)
    • Transnational multilingualism in developing countries
    • Bilingual development, bilingual school programs, second language teaching, literacy
    • Young people’s language and language use in multilingual context

    At the Centre for Research on Bilingualism, we also offer a wide variety of introductory and advanced courses as well as a full PhD program.
