Lindsay Giacomino is an Ph.D. student in the Hispanic Linguistics program. She received a dual B.A. in Spanish and Linguistics from St. Cloud State University in St. Cloud, Minnesota and her M.A. at Indiana University, specializing in phonetics/phonology, second language acquisition, and sociolinguistics. Prior to beginning the graduate program at Indiana University, she was a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant and taught English at a university in Colombia.
Lindsay's research interests include L2 phonology, task-based language teaching (TBLT) methods, learner individual differences on the acquisition of Spanish, sociophonetics and quantitative research methodology. Lindsay is currently involved in two research groups: one focused on longitudinally studying individual differences of L2 learners and one focused on developing a task-based domestic immersion program informed by research.
During the summers, Lindsay works either with the Summer Language Immersion Camp (SLIC) to motivate high school students to take their language skills abroad, or the Indiana University Honors Program in Foreign Languages in Chile, the country where she first fell in love with the Spanish language.
