Dr. Anbareen Jan’s Ph.D. dissertation was about teaching Languages Other than English (LOTE). It is a narrative research which explores how teachers of LOTE use English to teach other languages. She is a qualitative researcher and enjoys working in narrative inquiry, case studies, discourse analysis and phenomenology. Her area of research is Applied Linguistics with a focus on Internationalisation of Education, pedagogical practices, curriculum designing, and Teaching English as a foreign language.
Currently, she is working as an English lecturer at Coventry City Council where she is involved in teaching students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It is the same experience which inspired her idea of exploring the impact of teaching on adults from disadvantaged backgrounds.
