Abstract

I present my senior research project on the influence of curiosity on learning a second language, specifically French. This project incorporates my French and psychology majors as well as my education minor. I discuss the articles in English and French that led me to conduct research on this topic. I outline the various steps involved in creating and completing this psychology-based research project and the results I obtained about language learning. My hope is that the presentation will inspire students to think about the possibility of combining their majors and minors into a research project.
