Lisa BrittinghamGeneral Interests

I am especially interested in second language acquisition. My research has focused on the theories of second language acquisition and the best ways to teach a language. I endeavor to encourage my students in this process. I specifically try to implement theories of second language acquisition in the classroom in order to help my students succeed as they attempt to learn the French language.
