Research

The Senior Lecturers at the Language Centre are members of the research unit Identités. Politiques, Sociétés, Espaces (IPSE) which conducts interdisciplinary research in the humanities and social sciences.

Our applied linguistic and language learning research is geared towards:

  • optimising course provision;
  • building expertise in academic genres; and
  • informing the University’s language policies.

To this end, we examine corpora of written and spoken academic texts from various disciplines, perform needs analyses and investigate language teaching and learning methods for a multilingual university.
