Interview with Chris Jones

I have been following Chris Jones on twitter for about 5 years now and always found his work interesting. He is a researcher working in corpus linguistics with a special focus on spoken corpora and instructed second language acquisition. He recently edited a book on “Practice in second language learning”.

If you would like to read more about Chris’ work then check out his page at Liverpool university or his profile at research gate.
