Profilemepresentingiatefl

I am currently working on my PhD in Applied Linguistics and ELT, focusing on authenticity and motivation from an international perspective. I have a dual-focused set of research interests – language learning and literature – and I am happy to be able to bring the two together under one department. I am interested in mythology and how it relates to literature in different guises, especially modern works and creationist images in the work of Ted Hughes. I also have a special interest in JRR Tolkien’s mythology and invented languages. I have an eclectic mix of interests and I try to be passionate about everything I do.

担当科目について  Classes Taught

Discussion and Presentation 1 and 2. Writing Workshop 1 and 2.

The aim of my classes is to promote a better understanding of how to approach literature in a second language and to learn the critical academic skills needed to study at university level. For each class I assign various short texts and poems. Students can choose topics that most interest them to do project work on. I aim to make my classes motivating and empowering for students.
