Second Language Acquisition and Bilingualism Lab (SLAB)

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN

About the Lab

Located in G73 in the basement of the Foreign Languages Building, the SLAB lab came about in spring 2007 to serve the research needs of faculty and graduate students working on psycholinguistic aspects of second language acquisition.

The SLAB lab is the result of a joint effort involving the Department of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, the Department of Linguistics, The School of Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.

Some of our current projects are funded by the National Science Foundation.
