Lindsay Giacomino received her BA in Linguistics and Spanish at St. Cloud State University in May 2012. After a study abroad experience studying linguistics (more specifically phonetics and phonology) at the Universidad de Concepción in Concepción, Chile as well as teaching ESL there, she discovered her passion for linguistics as well as language teaching. She is currently interning at the non-profit Hands Across the World in St. Cloud, MN teaching English to refugees and immigrants. Upon completion of the internship, she hopes to teach abroad in either Latin America, Asia, or the Middle East before continuing on to pursue an MA/Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics. She wrote this paper for her senior thesis under the supervision of Ettien Koffi.
