Centre for Language and Education, Leuven
The research programme of the CTO includes fundamental and applied research into the relation between language, education and migration.
Research mainly focuses on language acquisition, language behaviour in multilingual settings, interaction in the language classroom, language policy, (second) language education and language testing. Special attention goes to the linguistic mechanisms that influence equity in education. This has led to a body of research in three major fields: psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, language testing
