Brain potential reveals the effect of language immersion on L2 learning

In this project, we aim to understand how the environment influence language learning. Research in bilingualism and second language acquisition has demonstrated the high adaptability of the human brain in response to environmental input and behavioral experience. However, in the previous studies on second language (L2) learning, environmental factors that may lead to structural and functional changes in the brain have rarely been systematically investigated. The length of residence in an L2 environment (LoR), which strongly relates to the amount of language experience, is one environmental factor that can impact neural mechanisms underlying L2 processing. Thus, this project will examine the effect of LoR on the neural processing of English by native speakers of Mandarin.
