Drawing on some of the recent findings of the LANGSNAP project, which investigated second language learning in a study abroad context, we will discuss how language contact and use as well as learners’ insertion and developing social networks can be understood. We will then relate our findings on language use, social networks and insertion to measures of second language development (e.g. accuracy, complexity).
