Adriana Picoral

I am a fourth year PhD student in the University of Arizona's Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT) program. My research goal is to study human cognitive, language, literacy and learning processes in both formal and informal instructional contexts so that I can design instructional procedures that enhance additional language learning.
