BELT - Brazilian English Language Teaching Journal
Call Deadline: 22-Oct-2014
Brazilian English Language Teaching Journal - is a peer-reviewed,
freely distributed electronic publication.
Theme: Portuguese as an Additional Language
To further broaden the scope and widen the content of the studies
published in BELT, the Editors are pleased to announce the inclusion of
Portuguese as an Additional Language as another major theme of this
journal. Due to the rapidly increasing interest in this field of study, as
well as the corresponding teaching and research initiatives being
established in higher education institutions in Brazil and abroad, it is
our new mission to showcase the quality research being carried out
around the world on the teaching and learning processes involved in
English and Portuguese as additional languages, from a variety of
theoretical and methodological perspectives. To this end, we will be
dedicating one issue per year to studies aimed at English as an
Additional Language and the second issue of the year to studies aimed
at Portuguese as an Additional Language. Our main goal is to promote
a broader debate on issues related to both themes, focusing on
different levels and contexts that touch upon the Brazilian reality.
Published every semester, the journal welcomes original articles, book
reviews, interviews and classroom activities.
As a reflection of this exciting new venture, we have modified our
journal's logo with a plus sign '+', while maintaining the original name
of the journal, thus preserving its origins.
The deadline for submissions of the inaugural edition of Portuguese as
an Additional Language of BELT is October 22, 2014.
