Karen’s research focuses on instructed second language acquisition. Specifically, she looks at the interaction between learner-internal factors, such as age, and learner-external factors, such as the amount of language exposure and type of instruction, as learners acquire second language morphosyntax and phonology. Among TPRS teachers, Karen is known for her meta-analyses of research on TPRS and her new book out with Routledge, Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling (TPRS): An Input-Based Approach to Second Language Instruction.  Karen will be the keynote speaker of ETPRS18.
