Brussels Corpus


Five (state secondary) schools participated in this pilot study, selected from various parts of Flanders. Care was taken that none of the schools were located within the immediate catchment area of the officially bilingual yet predominantly Francophone capital district of Brussels, or near the French-Dutch linguistic border separating the monolingual Dutch-speaking region of Flanders from the monolingual French-speaking region of Wallonia.
A total of 150 6th year secondary students (age 18) from the Modern Language section participated in the study, though only 125 completed all the components of the test battery. All students had had the same amount of curricular contact with English and French at the time of testing.
