Angela George, PhDPhD in Hispanic Linguistics University of Minnesota
Areas of Research
Within the broader field of Applied Linguistics, I primarily research how learners of Spanish develop sociolinguistic competence (ability to produce speech appropriate to the social situation) by examining the perception and production of features of the language that vary (two or more ways to say the same thing). My interest lies in adult second language learners of Spanish and also heritage language learners of Spanish. I also investigate second language pedagogy practices that lead to increased sociolinguistic competence and best practices for teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
Working with this supervisor
I am looking for candidates interested in researching the development of Spanish as an additional language by adult learners. Candidates interested in topics related to the teaching and learning of Spanish are also of interest.
