I also maintain active research interests in L2 fluency training, speech intelligibility, and speech comprehensibility.   My current research focuses on the role of fluency training on EFL/ESL learners’ speech fluency, comprehensibility, and accentedness, involving both experimental/quantitative and descriptive/qualitative research.
