In the first 1990 issue of TTWiA, stock is taken of 25 years of applied linguistics in the Netherlands. Three of the five papers deal with learning and acquiring foreign languages, one with second-language acquisition, and one with ethnic minorities in education (OET (home language instruction) and NT2 (Dutch as a second language)). During the 25 years before 1990, second-language acquisition and foreign-language instruction were the main research areas of applied linguistics. In recent years, the focus of TTWiA has shifted a little, with a considerable number of articles on Dutch as a school subject. At the moment, various developments can be observed in secondary education that have consequences for the course materials and the didactics of the school subject Dutch. In this article, we make a number of suggestions for research questions emerging as a result of developments in the field of applied linguistics.
