Research interests


My PhD research project is focused on Reading Comprehension in English as a FL with university students. The provisional thesis title is: Explicit Reading Instruction (ERI) for university students as a way of enhancing reading skills and strategic reading: an intervention teaching study.

My interest in this topic arose many years ago since reading in English in academic settings, especially at university level, is an ability usually required in many parts of the world where English language is not the L1. This widespread requirement contrasts to the reality that most students fail to learn to read adequately in the foreign language. In many parts around the world, students at university level not only do not possess reading abilities in the foreign language but also do not possess a reading practice and reading skills in their L1.

I have published some modest insights on reading comprehension, explicit reading, and communicative practice among other related topics.
