María Nieva Marroquín
María Nieva Marroquín is a PhD student in the Language Acquisition in Multilingual Settings (LAMS) programme and is co-supervised by Dr. María Martínez Adrián and Dr. María Basterrechea. She holds a BA in English Studies from the University of the Basque Country (2017) as well as an MA in Language Acquisition in Multilingual Settings (UPV/EHU, 2019) and an MA in Teacher Training in Secondary Education, Baccalaureate, Vocational Training and Official School of Languages from the International University of Valencia (VIU, 2022). During the LAMS master’s degree, she elaborated a Final Master’s Thesis titled “The acquisition of morphosyntactic properties by primary school CLIL learners: A pseudo-longitudinal study of syntactic and morphological features”. Said project was presented in the “1st International Conference on Language Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century”, held on the 5th and 6th of September 2020. Additionally, it received a runner-up prize at the “II Premio Trabajo Fin de Máster en Enseñanza Bilingüe”, organised by the Asociación Enseñanza Bilingüe, Newlink Education and Magisterio, and it has also been published in the International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching (IRAL).
With respect to her research, she is currently looking into the effect of form-focused instruction on the acquisition of morphosyntactic features by primary school CLIL learners.
