The overall aim of this workgroup is to support the improvement of written communication, both in education and in the workplace.

We aim to deliver course design parameters for effective L2 training situations (supported by L1-training situations), informed by analyses of the:
1. relation of two major phenomena in L1 and L2 writing,
2. relation between writing processes in L1 and L2
3. relation between L1 specific concepts of genres and L2 concepts of genre
4. understanding the factors favouring the development of expertise in writing in L1 and L2.
