Research interests: My research interests are primarily in second language learning and classroom instruction of German, especially in the area of form-focused instruction and the use of technology in language instruction. I am also interested in German dialects and have done a limited amount of work investigating a variation of Pennsylvania German in Lyndon, Kansas.
