Title: Current Issues in English Language Teaching and Learning
Subtitle: An International Perspective
Edited By: Mario Cal Varela
Francisco Javier Fernández Polo
Lidia Gómez-García
Ignacio M. Palacios Martínez
Description:

This volume contains a selection of the papers, seminars and workshops
presented in the First International Conference on English Language
Teaching and Learning (ICELTL1), held at the University of Santiago, Spain,
in September 2008, as well as a number of valuable original contributions
by other specialists who were involved in the conference. It aims to
represent the views of teachers, scholars, researchers, teacher trainers
and curriculum developers from all over the world, from the USA and Japan
to Europe. It is addressed to ELT teachers, researchers and professionals
who want to reflect upon and develop their knowledge and practice of
current issues in English language teaching and learning. Current problems
in many of the areas of ELT are given different solutions depending on the
context in which respective contributors conduct their work. It is
precisely this international perspective that makes this volume unique and
illustrative of different realities with a similar objective in mind: the
implementation and improvement of English language teaching. The various
contributions have been organised in four main sections that correspond to
the major focal topics of the conference: teacher training and development,
classroom management and practice, new technologies and language teaching,
and research on learner language.
