Abstract/Description: This study explores the acquisition of intonation by Spanish second language speakers while on a study abroad program in Valencia, Spain. The investigation consists of two groups: a control group and an instruction group. The instruction group participated in perception trainings while the control group did not. As this region of Spain is also bilingual, and there are no studies currently in the literature that describe the Spanish of Valencian speakers, this study also presents data from native speakers who completed the same task as the non-native speakers.
