In the last 15 years research into the acquisition of Spanish as a Foreign/Second language has seen a growing interest in the building of learner corpora but, in most cases, they collect Spanish interlanguage of English-speaking learners. SCIL is a longitudinal Spanish Corpus of Italian Learners and consists of 457 written compositions (124,186 tokens) by 43 inforrmants, whose proficiency levels range from A1 to B2 of the CEFRL. SCIL has been collected over seven months and stored to be used with WordSmith Tools. It allows both a longitudinal analysis, to observe the interlanguage evolution of a specific student or group, and a cross-sectional study, to observe a specific grammar or discourse feature in texts about the same topic written by different students.
