The In­sti­tu­te of Eng­lish Stu­dies' re­se­arch re­flects the di­ver­si­ty of Eng­lish and Eng­lis­hes, Eng­lish li­te­ra­tu­re and li­te­ra­tu­res, Eng­lish cul­tu­re and cul­tu­res, and the Teaching of Eng­lish as a For­eign Lan­gua­ge (TEFL).

We fo­cus on the he­te­ro­ge­neous and hy­brid na­tu­re of the­se re­se­arch are­as and the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on of our fin­dings in va­rious con­texts. Cur­rent pro­jects re­flect this in­ter- and trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry ap­proach. Re­se­arch in the field of TEFL deals with per­so­nal and af­fec­tive fac­tors of the lear­ner per­so­na­li­ty and with the in­ter­cul­tu­ral struc­tu­re of ac­qui­si­ti­on and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on si­tua­ti­ons. Com­pe­tence ori­en­ta­ti­on and as­sess­ment are im­portant as­pects of our re­se­arch.
