Dr Mike Orr
I am a Lecturer in Language Education. Before working in academia, I taught French as a foreign language for 9 years in a variety of institutions and with a particular focus on young learners. I am passionate about all aspects of Language Education and more particularly about issues related to language policy and multilingualism. It is always such a pleasure welcoming students from all over the world on the Language Education programme and hearing about their various teaching and learning contexts.

This MSc gave me a chance to learn from professionals. The lecturers, who have been language teachers for many years, shared not only their theoretical knowledge but also their own experiences with students.
