Mr WILSON HONG profile picture
  • Student
  • IOE - Culture, Communication & Media
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am a PhD candidate in Applied Linguistics at the University College London, a lecturer at the Macao Institute for Tourism Studies, the president of the Macao Education Development Research Association and an executive board member of the Macao Association of Psychological Health.

I have taught English both locally and abroad to students of different ages and nationality backgrounds: Spanish, Greek, Romanian, Kurdish, Italian, Chinese, etc. Apart from English courses.

I consider myself an education researcher and applied linguist. I have published articles related to language education, applied linguistics, psychology and tourism in SSCI, CSSCI, SCOPUS indexed journals, academic and non-academic books. I specialize in eye-tracking experiments and am an editorial board member of the Asian EFL Journal, Frontier and Education, Frontier in Psychology and Journal of Educational Technology and Innovation.
