Ph.D. in French Applied Linguistics, University of Texas at Austin
Stéphanie Pellet is an Assistant Professor of French Linguistics. Her research focuses on second language development, in particular in the area of pragmatics, and foreign language pedagogy, including teaching with technology and multimedia. She is co-author of an intermediate French language textbook, Pause-Café: French in Review / Moving toward Fluency. One current research project examines the role and evolution of foreign language education within liberal arts education. Another looks at the pattern of use of the French future tense to propose a pragmatically-motivated pedagogy. Both projects illustrate how the language learner is at the heart of her research, in turn informing her teaching.
