Introduction
My PhD is on Audiovisual Translation in Foreign Languages Education. More specifically, the use of Intralingual Dubbing to enhance Speed, Intonation and Pronunciation in Spontaneous Conversations. I have also worked with standard subtitling, audio-description and subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing in the context of language learning. Currently, I am working on different aspects of the new A-level curriculum and I have designed a website with e-learning material: HolaCandela.com
