Patricia describes herself as a ‘reformed monolingual’. After starting her career as a music teacher in England, she moved to Germany to teach with the British Forces and here her monolingual life changed. She became a fluent speaker of German. With her German husband she raised three bilingual children and discovered a passion for languages and in particular teaching English as a Second Language.

Her doctorate (the Role of Culture in Second Language Acquisition) was completed with London University in 2006 and based on experience in her career of over twenty years in the ESL & MT department at the International School of Düsseldorf.

Patricia was an active member of the ESL & MT committee and hosted the 2011 conference in Düsseldorf. She continues to write and undertakes both professional development and consultations for schools as a CIS Affiliated Consultant.

She is also an active evaluator in the CIS accreditation process and an IB English B examiner.

The subject of her presentation at this conference will be Translanguaging in the secondary school and the power of the mother tongue for effective learning and deeper understanding in a second language.
