Enric Llurda has done research on bilingualism, language attitudes, language awareness and language teaching, with a strong emphasis on non-native teachers in TESOL and English as a Lingua Franca, and some of the research projects he has recently been involved in deal with: a) the impact of university student mobility programmes on the development of English proficiency, intercultural competence and identity; b) a critical analysis of native speaker bias in the media coverage of English language teaching programmes in Latin America; and c) a study of the implementation of a plurilingual approach in teaching English as a lingua franca at university (currently in progress).
