Personal Bios



Madina Djuraeva


Background:

I come from a multilingual area, Bukhara, Uzbekistan, where I was raised as trilingual. While studying for BA in English language and Linguistics, I started wondering about the choices people make when switching between languages, the process of teaching and learning a foreign language and in general, what else is out there that I still have to know about the language. Therefore, after being awarded a Fulbright scholarship in language teaching, I decided to do my MA in Applied English Linguistics at UW-Madison. Since Id been an English teacher for 2 years in my home country, I chose AEL. However, this MA program changed the way I thought about Languages and Linguistics and contributed to my decision on doing PhD in World Language Education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. I believe that this program suits me best, because it gives me an opportunity to study language education from global perspectives.
