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.

Currently working towards my MA in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching, I studied BA French and Spanish at the University of Southampton.

During my degree I worked as a Language Assistant in Mexico City.

Since graduating, I have worked as an Independent Learning Advisor on the Pre-sessional English for Academic course for two consecutive summers, and spent a year teaching English as a Foreign Language in France. I am eager to help and share my experience in teaching languages and my extensive knowledge of language learning to encourage others’ to be successful in their studies.

I am currently working on an MA in Transnational Studies. My undergraduate degree was BA Modern Languages and I am fluent in French, Spanish and German as well as English.

I have lived and worked in France, Spain and Germany and have extensive knowledge of the languages and cultures. I am currently teaching myself Italian and have also dipped into Arabic, Chinese and Japanese. I am very passionate about languages and am determined to learn as many as possible!

I am an experienced language tutor and have also worked as a language assistant in two senior schools; one in Germany and one in England. All of my experiences have provided me with a whole range of strategies for language learning and success that I would be very happy to be able to share. Most importantly I can help you discover what works for you!

I recently relocated from the United States to Southampton in order to pursue a PhD in English, with an emphasis in creative writing. In 2015 I received a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. My studies for this degree culminated in writing and editing a manuscript of interwoven short fiction, and my stories, poems, and creative nonfiction essays have been published in North American journals such as The Gettysburg Review.

Before moving to England, I worked at the University of Arkansas as an Instructor on the Faculty of English, teaching undergraduate courses within the Program in Rhetoric and Composition. Prior to that, as a graduate student, I taught Composition and Creative Writing in addition to holding fellowships in both poetry and fiction. As a tutor for the university’s Quality Writing Center, I assisted domestic and international students with their academic and professional writing skills. I am particularly invested in working with English language learners due to my experiences in this area, and I enjoy helping students find creative solutions to the obstacles that may arise as they develop their comfort with a new language.
