Mrs Graciela Arizmendi Gonzalez is a Postgraduate Research Student within Modern Languages and Linguistics at the University of Southampton.

I was granted my first Master of Arts in English as a Second Language at the University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA when I successfully completed the course of study. Two months later, I obtained my second MA in Enseñanza del Inglés at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM), Toluca, Mexico where I had previously obtained my BA in Languages. Today, in light of my professional background, I am a 3rd year Postgraduate Research Student within Modern Languages and Linguistics at the University of Southampton.

Research interests

My research interest is in ‘Listening’ skill and strategies as they play an important role in ESL/EFL learning. L2 learners often struggle or are less proficient when listening to the spoken language due to many factors that somehow impact ‘Listening’. One of these factors can be the type of text/genre, which goes beyond cognitive perspectives and involves language, social and contextual conventions. Thus, going beyond a cognitive perspective, I am researching ‘Listening through a genre-based approach using narrative texts’. Particularly, my interest is on what strategies are transferred when listening to texts with a similar structure after having risen FL university learners’ awareness of text/genre features for a single text and how this knowledge impacts learner’s listening skill.
