Judith Axelby MEd (Applied Linguistics), DELTA

Senior Lecturer


I am a senior lecturer in TESOL, with a specific focus on Academic English development.


I teach and supervise on courses within TESOL, including input on Trinity Cert TESOL modules. I lead and teach on the University English Scheme, and as part of this role I design and deliver bespoke academic English sessions within courses across the university.

Prior to working at Hallam, I taught EFL, starting in the UK in 1999 and teaching in the British Council and International Schools in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

I’m interested in the teaching and learning of academic language on courses and within Higher Education institutions, and the use of multiple languages within educational environments.
