PhD Supervision Interests

I am interested in receiving PhD students in the following areas: psychological aspects of second language (L2) acquisition including L2 speech production and comprehension, cognitive processes of L2 learning, the role of cognitive and affective variables in L2 learning, language learning motivation, self-regulation, learner autonomy, special educational needs in language learning and teaching.

Current Teaching

I am teaching Statistical Analysis for Language Testing in the MA Language Testing Distance Programme and Critical Analysis of Social Data in the Thesis and Coursework PhD programme.

Research Interests

My research interests are:

1. Psychological aspects of second language learning. In my research I have investigated the speech production and monitoring processes of second language learners. I conducted studies on the role of language aptitude and working memory capacity in language learning.

2. Language learning motivation, self-regulation and learner autonomy in foreign and second language contexts.

3. Language learners with special educational needs. I was the chief investigator of a project that explores the foreign language learning processes of dyslexic students. You can read details of the project on the website http://esely.elte.hu. I authored a course-book on specific learning difficulties and language teaching to be published by Multilingual Matters with Anne-Margaret Smith. Currently I also work on a European Commission sponsoroed Lifelong Learning teacher training project in the field of dyslexia and language learning: www.dystefl.eu
