Hoa Le (Lê T. Vinh Hoa) joins the Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations in the Fall of 2022 as the director of the Vietnamese language program. Prior to this position, she taught Vietnamese language classes at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM) where she has been pursuing her Ph.D. in Second Language Studies focused on task-based language teaching, second language acquisition, and heritage language learners. Her publications on task-based language teaching have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as the Canadian Journal of Applied Linguistics. In 2022, she received the Frances Davis award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching at UHM. Hoa is enthusiastic about developing new, innovative syllabi and course materials that serve the diverse and real-world needs of her students. She advocates for a class where learners are given “learning by doing” opportunities whenever possible and “do” real-world tasks that help them learn the language implicitly and explicitly.
