Open Languages Research Group

Open Languages Research Group focuses on foreign and second language learning and teaching in a range of contexts. The name Open Languages encapsulates key themes. If second and foreign language learning is the core focus, then independent learning and the application of new technologies are two principal strands which reflect the importance of learning context, while the inclusion of cultures captures the significance of both the target cultures and the educational cultures of the learner and teacher.

Research activity takes place in five main areas:

  • Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) 
  • Language learning 
  • Language teaching 
  • Intercultural competence 
  • Education policy and practice
