  • Editorial
    • Abstract: We are living in turbulent times. We always have, perhaps, and maybe it is just a case of this becoming more apparent in the corner of the world where I live and work. But from war and conflict to migration, from climate change to poverty, and from prejudice to inequality, the challenges can seem insurmountable. Our governments and leaders, of whatever type and political persuasion, often seem to flounder, and popular opinion, often realized through elections of one kind or another, sometimes surprises and dismays; we can feel out of step with the mood of the times.

    • Authors: Rosenberg M.
      Abstract: As IATEFL is celebrating its 50th year as an association, plans for the 51st conference in 2017 are reflecting the excitement felt throughout the organization. We are heading back to Glasgow, Scotland and will be holding the conference in the modern Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre (SECC) from 4–7 April 2017. For those interested in delving deeper into a particular topic, all 16 IATEFL SIGs will also be holding Pre-Conference Events (PCEs) on the 3 April. In addition to looking forward to welcoming some 2,500 delegates from all over the globe, the British Council has kindly agreed to provide the infrastructure again for both the live-stream and the recordings of plenaries, sessions, and live interviews in order to ensure a global audience for Glasgow Online. The dedicated conference pages on the IATEFL website are filling up with information about travel, accommodation, restaurants, and sightseeing in Glasgow.

  • Spelling pronunciation in English
    • Authors: Deterding D; Mohamad N.
      Abstract: AbstractChanging English aims to illustrate the diversity of English in the world today and to ask whether, and how, ELT practitioners might accommodate such variation. Focusing on a particular language issue in each article, the series will explore how English varies between places and spaces, over time, and between groups of speakers, and will reflect on the possible implications of this for ELT practitioners.In this article, David Deterding and Nur Raihan Mohamad consider some of the ways pronunciation is changing to reflect spelling in differing contexts around the world, and discuss the implications of ‘spelling pronunciation’ for language teachers and learners.

  • Bringing real-life language use into EFL classrooms
    • Authors: Illés É; Akcan S.
      Abstract: AbstractThis article explores the potential of the classroom as a venue for authentic, real-life language use, and highlights the importance of unplanned classroom communication. Examples from the lessons of prospective English teachers in Hungary and Turkey indicate that, when given the opportunity, EFL students enjoy using the L2 spontaneously. The classroom observations provide evidence that unplanned interactions can create conditions which give rise to humour and linguistic creativity, both of which feature prominently in language use outside the classroom as well. By raising metalinguistic awareness and promoting fluency, humorous language play facilitates language acquisition as it enables learners to experiment as well as express their own meanings and find their voice in English. Teachers should, therefore, encourage off-task conversations and make good use of students’ humorous repartee and asides. Teacher educators should also encourage prospective teachers to create and exploit opportunities for naturally occurring interaction in their future classes.

  • Turn-taking and silent learning during open class discussions
    • Authors: Karas M.
      Abstract: AbstractThis study investigates turn-taking and silent learning during teacher-fronted open class discussions. Drawing on classroom observations and interview data, the study tracks the turn-taking habits of an advanced level EAP class in Ontario, Canada, and investigates how students use their non-verbal time during class discussions to enhance language learning. The participants use a variety of turn-taking mechanisms in order to enter classroom conversation, but many of the speaking turns are short and participation is unequal. For some, their lack of verbal contribution is due to various internal and external causes of reticence. However, the interview data reveal a variety of ways that some of these L2 learners silently engage with the discussion and enhance their language learning. Silent learning strategies, the impact of different cultural learning practices, and potential pedagogical suggestions are all discussed.

  • A discourse-based evaluation of a classroom peer teaching project
    • Authors: Mennim P.
      Abstract: AbstractThe use of peer teaching in the language classroom offers a creative way for students to participate more fully in the learning process. Previous studies have reported that peer taught lessons bring benefits such as improved motivation, enhanced learning, and authentic communication. This article evaluates the practice of peer teaching by examining classroom interaction to see how these benefits are produced. It focuses specifically on the discourse generated by Japanese university students as they worked together during peer taught lessons. Classroom interaction was recorded and considered in terms of its instructional value. Excerpts of interaction presented in the article reveal how the student-teachers encouraged participation and thought carefully about how to assist and support their peers. By fostering discourse that was collaborative in nature, peer teaching gave rise to learning opportunities relating to lesson content and language development.

  • Incorporating corpus literacy skills into TESOL teacher training
    • Authors: Zareva A.
      Abstract: AbstractThis study is an attempt to explore TESOL trainee teachers’ attitudes towards a corpus literacy component added to a grammar course on a teacher training programme. The main premise behind the investigation is that, before we can reasonably expect ESL teachers to embrace the idea of using corpora in their teaching, they need to develop their corpus literacy skills during their teacher training programmes. The research was carried out to evaluate the amount of time, resources, and support such an endeavour would require. It also offers a description of the course design, which can be easily modified to fit a variety of educational contexts and teacher training programmes. Finally, the discussion of the survey findings highlights the trainee teachers’ perspectives on their experiences of using corpora, and the potential and possible problems of using such an integrated approach to teacher training course design.

  • Investigating teacher perceptions of feedback
    • Authors: Lee H; Leong A, Song G.
      Abstract: AbstractIn writing classes, teacher feedback is important in helping students with their writing. While research has generally focused on the purpose, nature, and form of teacher feedback, attention to teachers’ views regarding their own feedback practices has been modest. Yet, it is important to understand why and how teachers provide feedback, as practice is often guided by beliefs. This study, therefore, investigated the factors that shape teacher feedback. Writing teachers at a Singaporean university were interviewed regarding their beliefs about feedback and their feedback practices. The findings revealed that the respondents’ feedback practices were shaped by their beliefs about the needs and capabilities of their students, but that contextual constraints created tensions between ideal and actual practice. Practical suggestions are offered to facilitate feedback practice. This study highlights the need for further work in this area in order to inform teachers’ practices in providing feedback to their students.

  • Formative assessment in discussion tasks
    • Authors: Parsons D.
      Abstract: AbstractOpen discussion tasks that involve problem-solving and the sharing of ideas are not amenable to the elicitation of target language forms. By systematically introducing formative assessment into the task, it is possible to improve students’ elaboration of language related episodes (LREs). In this article, I describe and evaluate the implementation of a resource based on the principles of formative assessment. Through the use of extracts focusing on students’ LREs, I show how formative assessment can be embedded into discussion tasks. The extracts reveal that students are capable of engaging in formative assessment, but may require more training in order to focus on specific language forms.

  • The figurative and polysemous nature of collocations and their place in
    • Authors: Macis M; Schmitt N.
      Abstract: AbstractThere is little guidance on how to teach different meaning senses of collocations as most pedagogical materials treat collocations as word partners which co-occur together. However, if we consider meaning, collocations fall into three categories. Literal collocations are combinations where the literal meanings of the words are simply added together. Figurative collocations have idiomatic meanings which are not derivable from the component words. Duplex collocations are polysemous, having both literal and figurative meanings. This exploratory study analysed 54 collocations and found that even though the majority of the collocations appeared to be literal, a substantial percentage had both literal and figurative meanings, and relatively few seemed to be solely figurative. We discuss the teaching implications of this, depending on whether the most important collocational characteristic is a pattern of co-occurrence or of meaning. Overall, we argue that considering meaning can bring useful insights to the nature of collocations and how to teach them.
