BUiD’s academic staff and alumna publish their research in the Open Linguistics journal

Emad Abu-Ayyash, Associate Professor of TESOL at The British University in Dubai(BUiD) and Doaa Hamam, BUiD’s alumna, published their research titled, ‘The declarative–procedural knowledge of grammatical functions in higher education ESL contexts: Fiction and reality’ in the Open Linguistic journal.

In their paper, they aimed to gain insights about English as a second language (ESL) learners’ knowledge of grammatical functions at the declarative and the procedural levels in the higher education context, and argued that the dialogue between the types of knowledge calls for more attention. Their study utilised a Words-in-Sentences Test that was administered to 841 ESL students in seven colleges and universities in three Arab countries: United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Oman.
