Lecturer in Korean
A teacher and researcher with a sincere heart and enthusiasm.
My research interests include issues related to foreign/second language (L2) writing, socio-cultural/socio-cognitive perspectives on L2 learning, and issues of heritage language maintenance. My doctoral dissertation explored KFL (Korean as a foreign language) learners' use of writing strategies from a socio-cognitive perspective. I have taught various levels of Korean, beginning level to 4th year advanced level courses. When I taught at the Ohio State University, I was also involved with Individualized Instruction (I.I)
