My name is Amy Clay and I am an Instructor of French and the Director of the French Basic Language Program at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My research in second language acquisition focuses on the teaching and learning of French in higher education. I study how learners and teachers think about form-meaning pairings while using or teaching their second language. I do a lot of thinking about thinking!
