Gabrielle Smallbone


I have worked with international students and speakers of English as a second or additional language for over 20 years, both overseas and in the UK. 

I currently work in the EAPD [English for Academic and Professional Development] department where I am one of the Academic Co-ordinators on our BALEAP accredited Pre-Sessional English course. I am also module leader on KLS English, which offers courses to support Kingston's international students in developing their general and academic language skills.

My research interests lie in learner identity formation in a second language, inclusive education and critical pedagogy.
