The L2 French participants

There were 29 L2 French participants in the LANGSNAP Project, and all spent their year-long residence abroad in France. The L2 French corpus has been anonymised and participants are identified in the repository by codes 100-129.

Ten French native speakers also undertook all French versions of the production task and are identified by codes 130-139.

All learner participants held an end-of-secondary-education qualification in French, normally the British A-Level, which was an entry requirement for their programme. All had studied French in secondary school, some had started at an earlier age. Key characteristics of the participants reported prior to residence abroad are:
