      First page: 112
      Abstract: This study examined the effect of the use of Instagram on EFL students’ writing ability. It involved 34 EFL students of an Indonesian university. The students were taught to write opinion essays with Instagram as the instructional medium. The treatment was given in six meetings, excluding the writing pre-test and post-test. The students were asked to make an opinion essay in the pre-test and post-test. They were also asked to respond to a questionnaire designed to verify their perceptions on three aspects: their competence in writing, interest in the use of Instagram in the teaching and writing, and learning process. The results of the data analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the pre-test the post-test scores. Based on the findings of this study, some recommendations are given for teachers and future researchers regarding the use of Instagram on the teaching of EFL writing.

  • Internationalization and Language Assessment in Brazil: Exploring the
           Interface between Language Proficiency and Rankings at UFES

    • Authors: Kyria Rebeca Finardi, Gabriel Brito Amorim, Cláudia J. Kawachi-Furlan
      First page: 139
      Abstract: The study is based on the assumption that knowledge of English is an important factor in the internationalization of higher education and that the English without Borders program has positively affected the overall level of proficiency in English as well as internationalization levels in Brazil. So as to verify this hypothesis, the study analyzed the interface between English proficiency levels measured with the TOEFL ITP test and internationalization scores measured in terms of rankings in a federal university in Brazil. Results of the study suggest that during the period analyzed these two variables remained stable, thus confirming the hypothesis raised.

  • Assessment in Second Language Pronunciation. By O. Kang and A. Ginther
           (Eds.), London and New York: Routledge, 2018, 190 pp., $39.91 (paperback).
           ISBN: 978-1-138-85687-5 (pbk)

    • Authors: Dunlai Lin, Sen Liu
      First page: 155
      Abstract: The pendulum of L2 pronunciation research has swung back to a time when there is a revitalization in research into assessment of second language pronunciation, with two edited volumes published within two years, Isaacs and Trofimovich (2016) and Kang and Ginther (2018), the book reviewed here. Assessment in Second Language Pronunciation takes pronunciation as a crucial aspect of oral production and delves into important constructs like accentedness, intelligibility and comprehensibility and the assessment of these constructs and sub-constructs in international communication and the related validity issues. The volume also discusses application of speech technology in pronunciation assessment, making it a highly-welcomed addition to the literature.
