Dr. Heike Mlakar

Research Interests

Broadly, I’m interested in children‘s foreign language literacy development and factors that influence spelling and reading acquisition. My research is concerned with effective literacy instruction for beginning learners of English as a foreign language.

My second research interest includes women writers of the Beat Generation (Brenda Frazer, Hettie Jones, Diane di Prima, Joyce Johnson).

Besides lecturing, I write English text books for Austrian EFL students (Prime Time, English Unlimited).
