Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education

Sarah is a senior lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, co-ordinating the modern foreign languages provision within the initial primary teacher education programmes. Sarah’s research and academic enterprise include motivation, early language learning, using technology in the language classroom and CLIL. She first became interested and involved in CLIL in 2008 after attending her first CLIL conference in Tallinn, Estonia in 2008. In June 2010, she successfully secured external funding from Linked Up, a branch of the Association for Language Learning (ALL) to lead a European CLIL project. The focus of the research project was to examine the impact of CLIL on pupils' attitudes and motivation. The final project report published in 2012 along with resources and planning documentation are accessible on the Linked Up website
