ALAN: Adult Acquisition of Norwegian as a Second Language

"The study will contribute new insights into how a hitherto understudied group adults develop their communicative abilities in a second language in a specific educational context."

I graduated from The Norwegian University of Science and Technology with a master's degree in Nordic Languages and Literature. I have worked as a research assistant at NTNU and The University of Bergen, as well as a lecturer at Nordkurs at The University of Oslo.
