The Doctorate in Advanced English Studies: Languages and Cultures in Contact provides an in-depth study of English and tries to apply the results to English language teaching.

The Doctorate in Advanced English Studies: Languages and Cultures in Contact at the University of Salamanca supports the notion of specialised knowledge of the English language, literature and culture. Different studies aim to provide out a more in-depth understanding of the relationship between the language and society, and to find formulas to improve language learning.

Paula Schintu is pursuing a doctoral thesis on the dialect spoken in Derbyshire, specifically a diachronic study from a sociolinguistic perspective spanning the XIX and XX centuries.

The challenge to better understand the English language

 

Another student, Elisa Perez Garcia, is working on applied linguistics to English language teaching. “I want to see if English students can deal with the emotional language, if they are capable of expressing their emotions, working with the language function to express themselves, and if this contributes toward enhancing their motivation when it comes to learning English”, she stated.
