Contact Me

My name is Andrea Martínez Celis. I am a Doctor in English Linguistics, a PhD which I earned at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, in Madrid, Spain. I also hold a BA degree in English Studies and a master’s degree in English Linguistics: New Applications and International Communication from the same university. In my Bachelor studies, during my stay at University of Sussex, in Brighton, United Kingdom, I became interested in the topic of forensic linguistics and, more specifically, in the analysis of suicide letters. I conducted a linguistic analysis on Virginia Woolf’s suicide letters, which was published in Journal of Artistic Creation and Literary Research. During my Master’s studies, I switched to a new field of research, focusing on the role of pragmatics in English teaching and learning for my Master’s final dissertation, which was published as a book.
Currently, I am working as a university lecturer at Rey Juan Carlos University, at the Department of Foreign Philology, Translation and Interpretation in the Faculty of Education and Sports Sciences, and Interdisciplinary Studies where I teach Modern Language and English Language and its Didactics to students from diverse university degrees, and in the master’s degree in Teacher Training for Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, Vocational Training and Language Teaching. In my courses, I explore innovative English-teaching methodologies that include training in pragmatic and intercultural competences.
I have participated as a speaker in several national and international conferences, including SIETAR (Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research) Europa Congress, LIF (Language in Focus), AELFE (Asociación Europea de Lenguas para Fines Específicos), AESLA (Asociación Española de Lingüística Aplicada), CIEB (Congreso Internacional de Enseñanza Bilingüe), II Congreso Internacional Educare+Educere, and UPCEL (UCM Predoctoral Conference in English Linguistics), among others.
I am a part of SIETAR (Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research) and an intercultural trainer at SWW (Small Wide World). In addition, I am a member of UCM’s Research Group, The Role of English in the Internationalization of Spanish Higher Education (EngInHE). In 2021, I carried out an international research stay as a visiting scholar at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands. I have reviewed articles for SAGE Open, Atlantis Journal, Journal of Pragmatics,Linguistica e Filologia Journal, and Verbeia: Journal of English and Spanish Studies.
