Research interests

My research is within the field of applied English linguistics, more specifically in English didactics (English language education). My main research interest is informal learning through extramural English (digital gaming in particular), often with a focus on L2 vocabulary acquisition. I also do research on assessment of L2 oral proficiency and English language teaching in school.
