Darren Paffey




I hold a BA (Hons) in French & Spanish Linguistics and a PhD in Spanish Sociolinguistics, both from the University of Southampton. I have lived in Santiago, Chile where I also taught English and researched bilingual education policy.

As well as my current teaching and research responsibilities, I am the Employability Co-ordinator for Modern Languages. Outside of the university, I serve on the Executive Committee of the Association for the Study of Spanish in Society, was an External Examiner for the University of Surrey for four years, and was organiser of the International Sociolinguistics Symposium in 2010.

An introduction to some key concepts in the effective teaching and learning of languages. What is language? How do we learn meaning in a new language? What is easy and hard about learning another language? And what is the best way to teach other languages? This free online course suggests some answers to these questions. It has been developed by the University of Southampton and the British Council, and draws on their exciting joint online course, MA in English Language Teaching.
