Jarrad Merlo (Master of Applied Linguistics, 2013) Director Product Development-

Before studying the Master of Applied Linguistics program, I had completed a BA and a Dip Ed and spent five years studying languages and teaching English in Indonesia, India, South Korea, and Arnhem Land. When I returned to Melbourne I decided to truly specialise in the science of language education.

I chose this program because I wanted a professional edge; I wanted a degree from a top-ranked university with a top-notched program that would give me professional recognition wherever I went.

I want to revolutionise language learning through technology and I now have the intellectual capacity to do just that. In fact, I co-founded and manage a language learning tech' startup. My research suggests it will dramatically improve the way we learn languages online, so stay tuned!
