TalkAbroad is providing grants to professors who want to do research on how interaction with native speakers can be fit into the curriculum and how it impacts second language acquisition. They are offering a couple types of grants that include free conversation practice with native speakers through TalkAbroad and cash reimbursement for expenses:
  • Curriculum development grants: allowing for professors to experiment adding interaction with native speakers into their curriculum.
  • Short and long term research grants. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
    • The impact of regular interaction with native speakers on program enrollment numbers.
    • The impact of remote interaction with native speakers on oral proficiency as compared to other methods (study abroad programs, on-campus speaking opportunities, etc.)
    • The impact of interaction with native speakers on students at novice and intermediate proficiency levels.
For more info, view the full RFP. Deadline for proposals is July 28, 2015.
