Translanguaging in English-medium Instruction (EMI)

Does EMI mean English as the medium of instruction or as one of many medium languages. This research focuses on the place of translanguaging in the EMI classroom.

Bilingual Education in Taiwan

Taiwan is currently implementing a policy of becoming a “Bilingual Nation” of English and Mandarin Chinese by 2030. This project focuses on defining what “bilingual education” means in the context of Taiwan and how to best train future teachers for their bilingual classrooms.

The Simple View of Writing in L2 Writing

The Simple View of Writing has been used in first language writing research as a theory of first language writing development. However, it remains absent from second language (L2) writing research. My research investigates the application of this theory for developing L2 writers.
