This chapter presents a synthesis of research on the acquisition of French as a second and foreign language undertaken at Stockholm University. It relates the earlier results of the project called <i>InterFra (French interlanguage &#8212; development, interaction and variation</i>) with more recent research on ultimate attainment in SLA. The study is presented in three parts. The first two are retrospective: first a description of the corpus <i>InterFra</i> ( &#8212; the integral corpus is here introduced for the first time &#8212; then follow the results of the doctoral theses and the continuum of the developmental stages as proposed by Bartning and Schlyter (2004), which all build upon the <i>InterFra</i> corpus. The third part accounts for a recent research programme about the last stages in SLA, namely <i>High-level proficiency in second language use</i>, a common programme between four departments at Stockholm University. The chapter gives the latest results from studies in this programme using three learner groups near the native borderline, called &#8216;advanced&#8217;, &#8216;functional bilinguals&#8217; and &#8216;near-natives&#8217;.
