The Language Scientists Podcast

Welcome to The Language Scientists Podcast!

We are your hosts for the series, Dr Kaitlyn Zavaleta and Dr Marie-Josee Bisson.

We are both Senior Lecturers at De Montfort University and we conduct research on language learning.   

Throughout the series we will be interviewing experts in the field of language learning and beyond to impart informative, evidence based and practical advice. The topics range from incidental learning, eye-tracking, learning vocabulary though reading, creative assessments, using virtual reality in the classroom, training phonological abilities, randomised control trials, speech errors and conducting research online.    

We hope that you will join us in discovering all those topics and let us know what you think! Can you help us by completing our survey? We would like to know what you liked about this episode, what you would like to hear about next and also whether you have encountered any barriers in your language learning journey.
