Interview with Fabiana Fausto – EAP Professor at INTO Queen’s University Belfast

My special guest is my friend Fabiana Fausto McCracken. Fabiana and I met a long time ago at UFRJ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, when we were both in the undergrad course. Fast forwarding some years : She holds a PhD in Linguistics from INTO Queen’s University Belfast.

Fabiana  is a teacher of English for Academic Purposes ( EAP) and acting Programme Manager at INTO Queen’s University Belfast. She currently manages the International Year One in Management and Finance and the International Year One in Accounting programmes. She has a BA in Modern Languages (Portuguese and English) and an MA in Applied Linguistics from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, and a PhD in English Language (Linguistics) from Queen’s University Belfast.

As part of her PhD experience, she has also taught Linguistics modules to undergraduate students at Queen’s University, namely Introduction to English Language and Language and Power. More recently, as an EAP teacher, she has become interested in developing materials for ESAP (English for Specific Academic Purposes) in the areas of Management, Finance and Accounting.

We talked about being an NNEST in the UK, EAP, the route she took into her PhD and, on top of that, she gave useful tips for NNEST teachers who would like to teach in the UK.

I hope you find it useful.
