Episode 3.2: A life of GRADitude

Now starting the SLATE (Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education) program within the French Linguistics track, Tricia talks about how she keeps her goals in mind as she expands her research. Tricia and the boys also tackle many questions that are unique to the US model of SLA - multilingualism vs. bilingualism; the absence of research in to language learning anxieties; Resident Evil - while Robbie continues to wow with her L1 struggle bus.
