Welcome

The mission of the Centre for Applied Research and Outreach in Language Education (CAROLE) is to study and develop knowledge of second language acquisition, and to advance the quality of second language teaching, and language learning by: 

  • Conducting applied research and leading high impact projects
  • Sharing research and other forms of knowledge across disciplines and education systems
  • Extending, exchanging, and applying this knowledge in the wider society and local community
  • Developing research and enterprise partnerships with other institutions and communities
  • Supporting high quality teaching in modern languages and language studies.    

The Applied Linguistics Research Group within CAROLE has produced detailed strategies for next REF 2021

Members of CAROLE have secured external funds and bids for research and consultancy and develop new collaborative research projects with international scholars and institutions.
