Amelia Lambelet is a Research Manager at the Institute of Multilingualism, University of Fribourg, Switzerland. Her current research expertise concerns mainly foreign/ second language learning at school and within extra-curricula activities with a particular focus on transfers, receptive multilingualism, individual factors having an impact on language learning and the age factor in relation to L2 learning.

He directs the MA programme in Multilingualism studies and co-founded the Fribourg Institute of Multilingualism in 2008. His research interests cover different areas from cognitive to social aspects of multilingualism.
