    This chapter presents an overview on three fundamental questions in regard to advanced second language (L2) segmental and suprasegmental acquisition. They include (a) how L2 learners improve and attain advanced L2 speech abilities through extensive and intensive immersion in a target language speaking environment (i.e., process); (b) the extent to which their attained competence can approximate that of monolingual native speakers (i.e., product); and (c) what kinds of learners likely achieve such high-level L2 speech performance according to a range of learner-extrinsic factors (age of acquisition and testing, length of residence, quality and quantity of input) and learner-intrinsic factors (cognitive abilities, aptitude, motivation) (i.e., individual differences).
