Title: Narratives of Learning and Teaching EFL
Edited By: Paula Kalaja
Vera Menezes
Ana-Maria Ferreira Barcelos

Narratives of Learning and Teaching EFL is a collection of research reports
on lived experiences of the English language with a focus on the subjective
meanings and emotions involved in English-as-a-Foreign-Language contexts of
learning and teaching, including Japan, Brazil, and some European
countries. Contributors make use of fresh theoretical frameworks and
innovative methods of data collection and analysis (including verbal and
visual narratives). It works as a kaleidoscope, providing a variety of
perspectives on learning and teaching EFL through narrative research. The
intended audience consists of experienced scholars and also students about
to begin their careers as researchers. The idea is to encourage others to
try out some of the theoretical frameworks or narrative methodology in
their own contexts of EFL or other foreign languages or by extending these
to contexts of second languages. Narratives of Learning and Teaching EFL
can thus function as a source of ideas – and also as a tool kit.
