The present study examines the cross-linguistic influence in a group of 30 Iranian
children between the ages of 8 to 13, who have Persian as their mother tongue, English
as their second language and are learners of French as the third language. Their oral productions
in French have been analyzed based on the typologies of Williams and Hammarberg
(1998), Cenoz (2001) and Trévisiol (2006), in order to understand to what extent their L1 and
L2 influence their production in L3 and to demonstrate the role of each previously acquired
language. The results indicate that the first language (Persian) plays both instrumental and
supplier roles, while the second language (English) is only used in the supplier role.
