Biography:

I am a second year student from Danville, Pennsylvania where I live with my mom, Michelle, my dad, Chris, my brother, Gabe, my sister, Amelia, my dog, Chase, and my cat, Winnie. I love learning languages- I’m best at English and Spanish but I’m also learning American Sign Language and Portuguese.

Project Summary:

This summer, I will be traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico where I will be investigating whether a greater vocabulary size in Spanish-English bilingual adults improves sentential predictive abilities. My research can hopefully go on to inform teaching practices, especially whether language teachers should focus more on increasing their students’ vocabulary size.
