Research interests

The working title of my research is "The effect of social and cultural interaction on language learning in study abroad". It is known from literature that students' ability to become proficient in a second language is affected by the extent to which such students are able to use that language in their socio cultural settings. As such, this study focused on determining whether or not female Saudi Arabian study abroad students who have had more social and/or cultural interactions while they were studying abroad gained more from the study abroad programs than students who did not have as much interaction. This study developed a mixed method research design that employed both quantitative and qualitative data gathering and analysis protocols.
