Christopher Timothy McGuirk

Lecturer in EFL (English as a Foreign Language), University of Central Lancashire

A teacher of English as a second language for 14 years. I have an MA in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the University of Manchester, along with a Trinity Dip TESOL and CELTA qualification. I have a BA in Japanese/Second East Asian Language from the University of Durham.

I am currently a lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire, but I have taught in Korea, Sudan and Japan, as well as in language schools at various locations in the UK.

My research interests include computer and mobile-assisted language learning, second language acquisition, language learning psychology and digital natives.
