At the University of Exeter, I mainly teach oral, written classes at degree level. I am also responsible for a plenary grammar lecture for all first year students of French in term 1.
I am interested in all aspects of language teaching. My objective is to provide students with an authentic learning experience. I am particularly interested in the following areas:
  • the development of innovative teaching practices to encourage personal, meaningful and relevant learning experience.
  • the use of content based language teaching to challenge students and enhance their motivation.
  • the relation between second language acquistion research and classroom language teaching practice.
  • the development of e-learning resources to promote autonomy in learning.
