Cook and Learn: A Taste of Language And Culture

In collaboration with the Creativity Exploratory, Senior Andrew Najor designed a research project to better understand how following a recipe in another language can reinforce language skills in second language (L2) learners, specifically imperatives, through task-based learning. The project investigated the effectiveness of L2 cooking tasks on vocabulary retention and culture learning.
