Description
I will be analysing the chatlogs from seminars and pre-seminars with the Vietnamese students on the Masters Program in English Linguistics. My hypothesis is that many of their errors in English are due to interference from Vietnamese. I will focus first of all on grammatical errors and intend to move on to pragmatic errors (where English is used wrongly in different situations).
