Summary/Abstract: This paper focuses on a multi-level approach to interference in advanced English interlanguage based on three studies using the German, Spanish and French subcorpora of the Louvain International Database of Spoken English Interlanguage ( LINDSEI). The studies aimed to provide insights into: the scope of interferenceinduced errors (using the German subcorpus of LINDSEI); learner-centred identification and explanation of errors to explore the learners’ competence / performance level (using the German subcorpus); as well as the extent to which interference-induced errors occur due to congruent structures in the target language and the learner’s L1 (using the German, Spanish and French subcorpora).
