Welcome to LAILA - BICS

 

Welcome to our website!

 

These pages are still a work in progress, so please be sure to check back in a few weeks for more detailed information on LAILA-BICS.

LAILA-BICS - short for Linguistic Awareness in Language Attriters in Bilingual Contexts - is a longitudinal research project that looks at how people remember and forget languages they have learned, and at how learning, remembering and forgetting languages changes how we think. Our project is unique in its multilingual approach: rather than looking at the development of just one language, we look at several languages in interaction.

This project was made possible through a funding of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano and the Amt für Hochschulförderung.
