The thesis examines the extent to which the factors of nativeness and expertise may affect the pattern of metadiscourse use in Spanish academic writing.
The present study examines whether there is a statistically significant difference between the DDL approach to vocabulary learning and more traditional learning methods (e.g., dictionary approach) in the context of Spanish as a foreign language (SFL) by Chinese students.
