                                  Individual Differences and Second Language Speech Learning

                                    A great individual variability can usually be seen in second language (L2) speech learning. While some learners can develop near-native L2 oral ability from a short term of immersion, others struggle to perceive or produce comprehensible speech even after years of learning. This phenomenon could be explained by a range of individual difference (ID) factors. However, whereas the role of IDs has been extensively examined in L2 lexicogrammar development, relatively few studies have further examined whether and to what degree not only learner-external factors (quality and quantity of L2 experience) but also learner-internal ID factors (e.g., explicit and implicit learningaptitude, music aptitude, auditory processing ability, motivation,awareness, personality) can determine the L2 speech learning.In this talk, I will explain what these main individual differences are and how they can influence the L2 speech learning (production and perception) based on the findings of our research projects.


                                    Hui is a graduate of Beijing Institute of Technology (School of Foreign Languages). She’s alsoone of the first exchange students enrolled in Birkbeck’s international partnership programme (Department of Applied Linguistics and Communication) with BIT in 2013. In 2015, she continued to pursue a PhD degree in Applied Linguistics at Birkbeck with a three-year scholarship. Since graduated last year, Hui has worked as a postdoctoral researcher on a psycholinguistics project in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck.  

                                    Hui’s main research interest are in the areas of individual differences and second language acquisition. More specifically, her research focuses on the effects of individual differences (e.g., language aptitude, auditory processing ability, motivation, awareness, personality) on second language speech perception and production. Her research has been published in international journals including Bilingualism: Language and Cognition , Studies in Second Language Acquisition .
