About the teacher

My name is Eunseok Ro and I am currently in a PhD program in Second Language Studies at University of Hawai’i at Manoa.

Second Language Studies concerns how language is used by native speakers and language learners as an interactional, social, or cultural phenomenon. It also deeply looks into how first and second languages are learned, taught and assessed within a wide range of real-world or laboratory contexts.

I am especially interested in second language reading (L2 reading) and especially how extensive reading (ER) can reinforce learners’ existing vocabulary knowledge, reading strategy, reading comprehension, writing abilities, reading fluency and motivation towards reading in general.
