The learner corpora made available here were collected in summer 2016 as part of the research project Investigating foreign language attrition, maintenance, and development post-instruction and residence abroad: The LANGSNAP participants 3 years later. This project investigates the long-term evolution of foreign language proficiency post-instruction and study/residence abroad, an important and understudied area of research relevant to second language acquisition. LANGSNAP 3.0 contributes new data to the existing longitudinal Languages and Social Networks Abroad Project (LANGSNAP: Mitchell, Tracy-Ventura, McManus, 2017; Tracy-Ventura, Mitchell, & McManus, 2016). More information about LANGSNAP and the experimental tasks can be found at http://langsnap.soton.ac.uk/. and in this book. This repository includes three types of data for each language:
The data available include anonymized audio recordings of the oral interview and story retelling data, as well as transcripts of all data in CHAT format.
