An abstract in English
The short article presents the "Faktorenmodell" (model of factors". It lists the different factors that play a role in acquiring or learning a L1, then a L2 and L3 (or Lx - meaning every language after). It assumes that there is a qualitative difference in learning a L3 as a lot of "foreign language learning factors" (e.g. language learning strategies) are acquired/added in the learning of a L2. (The qualitative difference between L2 and L3) was also shown in studies before and after). It has to be mentioned that for L2 and L3, the model is focusing on "learning" in an institutional context.

An abstract in English
"The normative use of past tenses is supposed to be a big challenge for learners of Spanish. Although they might understand the grammatical chapter in theory, adequate past tense use in spontaneous oral production is not guaranteed. Morphological errors, overgeneralizations of tenses and interferences with other languages characterize the interlanguage of the learners. Based on two corpuses, we analyse how the past tense use differs between secondary school students from Austria and Romance polyglots. Qualitative and quantitative analyses show that polyglot speakers surpass the secondary school students in some areas such as the distinction of verbal aspect. However, the students tend less to use the perfecto compuesto in an inadequate way in narration."
