Dr. Gasoigne’s teaching interests include topics and courses such as French grammar and composition, composition and stylistics, structure of French, and second language acquisition research. Her recent research interests include various aspects of second language acquisition such as studies of focus on form techniques, hybrid instruction, and the role of classroom climate in the language learning process.
