Kristin Lange

      My name is Kristin and I started the SLAT Ph.D. program in Fall 2012. I grew up in a small village south of Berlin, Germany and received my B.A. and M.Ed. in English, German and Pedagogy from Freie Universität Berlin. In 2008-2009, I worked as a Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) at Saint Louis University in Missouri, where I taught German and coordinated the university’s German cultural program. I also took part in a work-and-travel program in New Zealand in 2004.

      I am planning to major in L2 Pedagogy with a minor in German Studies and L2 Processes and Learning. I teach in the Department of German Studies and my research interests are mostly related to classroom teaching and learning. For example, I am interested in the role of culture and literature in the language classroom, the acquisition of language structures and vocabulary, and the role of feedback and motivation in L2 classrooms.
