Recent Research Interests

My current research interests are in Corrective Feedback, Implicit Language Knowledge and Task Based Learning. Corrective feedback (CF) can greatly benefit students acquisition of language, but it’s difficult to know when and how much CF a teacher should give, so I researched it. I am also interested in researching and getting students to complete tasks in my classes. I think its enjoyable and motivating for students to work towards meaningful tasks. Both of these research areas aim to develop students’ communication skills otherwise known as Implicit Language Knowledge skills.
