Research

My research interests stem from a professional and personal interest in language learning and teaching. I believe that all learning and teaching is language based. There is a technical corner of the debate between that and other views of teaching and ways of understanding education which implicates L2 learning and teaching; some theories and strategies there are pivotal in deciding whether language teaching is a sufficient model for all teaching. I am working, and will continue to work, on that set of ideas as a research field.

Research Focus on: Language Awareness, Teaching and Learning of Modern Foreign Languages, Language in Society, 1+2 Approach, Second Language Acquisition.
