About

I am currently an English Language teacher in Oman and PhD Candidate at the University of New England. I am interested in preparing non native English speakers for English medium universities. A part of this is considering the different needs of students preparing for courses in an English medium university in a non English speaking country, as compared to those preparing for university in an English speaking country.
