The end of season 2 is here, but we have a great episode for you!
In this episode, we’re going to talk about bilingual reading development with a leading expert in the field – Dr Holly Joseph. Holly is an Associate Professor of Language Education and Literacy Development at the Institute of Education, at University of Reading.
Her research focuses on reading development and difficulties, vocabulary learning, eye movements during reading, developmental disorders, and, what we are going to discuss further today, bilingual reading development, especially in children who speak English as an Additional Language.
On top of her teaching and research, Holly is the Co-Director of Bilingualism Matters at the University of Reading, as well as the Co-Director of Postgraduate Research Studies, and the Director of CELM, the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism.
Originally from the UK, she speaks English, and Spanish.
