I am a Ph.D candidate in General Linguistics.Prior to that, I received a BA in English and English Pedagogy at Cantho University (Vietnam). After working as an international relation officer and English teacher at Cantho University, Vietnam, I completed my Master’s degree in Language and Culture in Europe at Linköping University (Sweden). I also obtained another Masters degree in Higher Education Research and Development at Kassel University (Germany). From these backgrounds, I have a range of research interests,broadly speaking on second language acquisition, language didactics, language policy in relation to language learning and teaching, language itself in relation to culture, corpora in language teaching and learning besides internationalization of higher education.
