About me

My research interests are mainly in Spanish Discourse Analysis and Pragmatics, particularly the use of adverbial expressions and linking words related to registers in academic writing. For my PhD, I explored the metalinguistic meanings and uses of the adverb literally suggesting a new functional and discursive category. I am also interested in pedagogical grammar approaches. I co-created and taught the content module Pedagogical grammar for the University of Barcelona – UNIBA as part of its Master’s Degree in “Teacher of Spanish as a Foreign Language” (online course).  Currently, I am researching into classroom dynamics while participating in a project on how to increase spontaneous speaking and motivation using improvisation techniques and activities in Spanish as a Foreign Language at the LSE.

About the Language Centre

The Language Centre here at the London School of Economics reflects the specialist nature of the School itself, namely, a world class institution where the quality of teaching and research is paramount.

LSE is not just a multi-national university but also a multi-lingual one.

We offer English for Academic Purposes programmes, undergraduate degree courses and a range of language options that you can take outside of your main degree programme. All programmes and courses relate language study and support to the fields of interest of social science students.

The Language Centre is part of LSE’s Academic and Professional Development Division.
