Lecturer of French

Research/ Teaching Interests
Language testing, the role of feedback in second-language instruction, integration of culture and technology in the foreign language classroom
I believe it is essential to teach in the target language, to teach in context using authentic documents, and to have a good in-class atmosphere, all the while using various techniques and technologies to appeal to different types of language learners. This is something I strive to achieve every semester with each new group of students.
