-Cognitive and social developments and early English learning
-Empirical studies of the effects of early English education

vocabulary, reading, etc.) related to age
-Cross-linguistic influence/transfer

-Professional development for educators of young English learners
-Assessment for young English learners
-Early English education in multilingual contexts

-Classroom discourse in early English language classes
-Political debates on the age of teaching foreign languages

For consideration for this issue, please send an abstract of up to 300 words
to guest editors Yuko Butler and Hikyoung Lee (jofasiateflgmail.com). The

consideration, the research question/focus, the theoretical framing and/or a
synopsis of findings, and conclusions. If the abstract is accepted, you will be
invited to submit a paper due August 1, 2012, which will undergo normal peer
review procedures. The issue is scheduled for publication in late 2012.
