Hello. I’m working on my dissertation in the Applied Linguistics Program. I’m interested in foreign language learning, inner speech, and the contribution of phonemic awareness to overall foreign language aptitude. I have a B.A. in French and Psychology, a master’s in Education, and I work full-time as a French teacher. Please check out the link to the exciting study that I am doing with Professor Harris or email me if you’d like to get involved.
