CLERA has a broad range of researchers and research candidates working in many different areas of language education. Each month, we feature one of our researchers to learn more about them, their work and their interests.
Our Researcher of the Month for September is Kristjan Seferaj, a DELTA-qualified teacher who holds a MA in Applied Linguistics and TESOL (University of Leicester). As a PhD student, Kristjan began his academic studies at Aston University in 2010. His research interests lie in ELF Methodology, Language Attrition, Teacher Training, and Systemic Functional Genre Studies. One of his studies was published in The Asian EFL journal (link: www.asian-efl-journal.com/Thesis/Thesis-Seferaj.pdf) and he continues to work on the area of LI attrition as well as his PhD project that aims to investigate how and why six East-European EFL teachers use Western teaching resources in their classes.
