The Acquisition of Dialect Features during Study Abroad

Brendan Regan - Texas Tech University
When you study abroad, you aren’t just exposed to a new language, you’re exposed to a new dialect of that language. But how do you decide if you’ll learn that dialect as well? In this talk, Dr. Regan will discuss what social aspects influence how students decide to learn different dialect features during study abroad and if they are successful at it, with a specific focus on students studying Spanish in Spain.
