Vita

Dr Oksana Afitska joined Lancaster University as a lecturer in TESOL in 2018. Prior to her work at Lancaster University, she was a lecturer in applied linguistics with TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at the University of Sheffield, UK. She had also previously worked as a researcher, teacher and tutor in primary, secondary and higher education contexts both in the UK and abroad. Her current research investigates teaching and learning practices of young learners with English as an additional language (EAL) in state primary schools in the UK. Her primary research interests lie in the areas of TESOL and EAL, bilingual and multilingual education, content and language integrated learning (CLIL), formative language assessment and development of language teaching materials. Dr Afitska has extensive experience in conducting classroom-based research, including carrying out experimental and intervention studies.
