Secondary Languages

Pierre Meziere, who is completing a master’s dissertation at the University of Oxford is  looking for French teachers to help with his research project. We have offered to promote this as the more teachers involved, the more thorough his results will be.

The project aims to study how teachers of French perceive themselves and what relationship they maintain with the language, especially how labels such as ‘native speaker’ and ‘non-native speaker’ affect their personal and professional identities but also their teaching practices.

This project is going to take place over two periods: an initial questionnaire followed by a round of interviews in French on a voluntary basis.

The only requirements are

(1) to be a teacher of French and

(2) experience in the UK (at secondary level preferably).

If interested, click on this link to the initial questionnaire and you can contact Pierre at
