I am a lecturer in Spanish in the School of Languages and Applied Linguistics since 2022. Before joining the OU, I was a visiting lecturer at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain, (2019-2022) and a foreign lecturer in Beijing Foreign Studies University, China (2016-2019). I have also collaborated with Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. I have experience teaching modules in linguistics Catalan and Spanish as foreign language, and intercultural communication.
My research interests include sociolinguistics, and language learning and teaching:
My teaching interests span a wide range of topics from linguistics to teaching forign languages. I believe that students are the center of the learning process and I combine teaching approaches to best adapt to their needs. I use collaborative learning to promote students’ retaining and responsibility, communicative and task-based methods to motivate learners, as well as intercomprehension and metalinguistic strategies to help students become plurilingual speakers.
At the OU, I am part of the Spanish 3 module (L336) team, where I collaborate with presentation and production, and I am also involved in L161: Exploring languages and cultures. I took part in the production of Spanish short courses.
I am a member of the research center MIRCo and I am involved with the Equiling project, a collaborative research project betweeen Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, Deustuko Unibersitatea and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. I collaborate in the project AULIJOVIB, a study coordinated by members from the Universitat de les Illes Balears and funded by the Balearic Government. I am a memember of the association SERCLE, which focuses on Catalan as a foreign language, and I participate in the editorial board of its journal, Resercle.
