Second Language Acquisition (SLA) Norwegian as a second language language learning in workplace settings

Ina Celise Sortland is a PhD Research Scholar at the Department of Professional and Intercultural Communication at the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). She has a teacher qualification in Norwegian language and literature and holds a master’s degree in Norwegian as a second language from the University of Bergen (UiB).

In her academic journey, she has maintained an emphasis on the field of Second Language Acquisition, particularly exploring crosslinguistic influence during her master’s thesis.
