What is Languages and Academic English Advising?

 

Languages and Academic English Advising sessions give students the opportunity to discuss any issues related to language learning or academic development on a one-to-one basis.

Students can make appointments with advisors to talk about ways to practise foreign languages independently or how to improve in general academic English skills.

I am currently a PhD student working on intercultural communication. A fluent speaker of Arabic, French, Spanish and English, I teach French and English as foreign languages and have 2 years’ experience teaching French and running translation modules in the University Abubakr Belkaid Tlemcen, Algeria. I have volunteered in schools in Southampton, Barcelona, and Tlemcen (Algeria), and ran workshops about Arabic language and culture at the University of Southampton.

I worked as an interpreter and translator for the European Union Election Observers and as editor of comic books and web content in three different languages.

My experience with languages and exposure to different cultures have helped me to develop a sense of awareness to the challenges language learners go through. I am highly motivated to advise and accompany you in your language learning journey.

My research focuses mainly on investigating classroom discourse with a focus on teacher talk, which includes also the first language, in order to find out what discourse features of teach talk construct or obstruct learning opportunities in EFL/ESL classrooms. I aim to consolidate and operationalise the notion of learning opportunity as a key concept in understanding classroom learning, so readers can understand learning opportunity as a unit of analysis of classroom interaction that can be constructed jointly by teacher and students in a classroom even with limited resource environment.

I was an exchange student in the US for one year, then got my MA in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching at University of Southampton before starting my PhD in 2015. My current research investigates the use of English as a medium of instruction in Higher Education.

I spent several years working as a university lecturer in English Department, College of Foreign Languages, Hue University, Vietnam. Since moving here, I have worked as a Teaching Assistant for several MA modules and as an Independent Learning Facilitator for the 2017 Pre-sessional Summer course. Besides, I was an advisor for the Dissertation Writing Centre of Modern Languages in 2017. I have also worked as a freelance translator.

As a language learner, advisor and teacher, I believe I can put myself in your situation, see your concerns, and share my own learning experience and strategies with you.
