Maite Amondarain-Garrido

Maite Amondarain Garrido holds two degrees, one in Pre-primary and another in Primary Education (2010), from the International University of La Rioja (UNIR), an MA in Bilingual Education (2015) from UNIR and an MA in English Studies (OMiES, 2018) from the University of Jaén (UJA). Her former MA thesis was focused on Basque Primary students’ Foreign Language Acquisition (FLA, English) through scaffolding and multiple intelligences in a CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) context; and the latter on translanguaging and multimodality in CLIL Primary Education in The Basque Country. She taught English as a FL (1998-2016) in different private language schools in Gipuzkoa (Spain), she spent a year in Cambridge (UK) as a caregiver in a British family (1999-2000) and worked in a state-assisted school for two years (2015-2017) in San Sebastian-Donostia (Gipuzkoa, Spain), where she taught CLIL subjects, among others, to Primary students. Her PhD project focuses on the analysis of the teacher’s discourse from the translingual and multimodal perspectives to delve into the understanding of their pedagogical influence. The project is supervised by Dr. Mercedes Querol-Julián and Dr. Yolanda Ruiz de Zarobe. On 2019/2020 she did a research stay at the University of Stirling (Scotland, UK) where she was supervised by Dr. Angela Creese and Dr. Fiona Copland.
