  • Multilingualism as a resource in the foreign language classroom
    • Authors: Illman V; Pietilä P.
      Pages: 237 - 248
      Abstract: Foreign language classes are becoming increasingly multilingual even in countries that until recently have been remarkably monocultural, such as Finland. Teachers may not be prepared for this new situation, and the needs of students with immigrant backgrounds may be overlooked. This article reports a study in which both students with immigrant backgrounds and teachers of English were asked how they experienced multilingualism in the language classroom and how the students’ multilingual background was taken into account in English classes. Both groups answered a questionnaire with closed and open questions. The results indicated that the children found English relatively easy to learn and they were able to use their L1s especially to benefit vocabulary learning. The majority of the teachers had not received any training in teaching students of immigrant background, but they reported having developed some strategies that utilized their students’ multilingualism for the benefit of teaching English.

  • Engaging pre-service English teachers with language policy
    • Authors: Hult F.
      Pages: 249 - 259
      Abstract: Teachers have the potential to be active agents in language policy and planning (LPP) processes when designing lessons or managing linguistic resources in their classrooms. A key consideration, then, is to guide pre-service educators towards an understanding of LPP principles and how they can be applied in practice. The present study documents an interactive LPP roleplay project that was designed to raise awareness among pre-service teachers about how they can engage with policy interpretation and negotiation. The project took place in the context of a sociolinguistics course within an English teacher education programme. Following the roleplay, pre-service teachers wrote reflective journals which were analysed inductively in order to investigate how they experienced the roleplay with respect to professional development. The findings show that roleplay helped these teachers see the relevance of policy to educational practice and also provided hands-on experience with the challenges and benefits of negotiating policy interpretations with colleagues.

  • Teacher research during an international practicum
    • Authors: Gilliland B.
      Pages: 260 - 273
      Abstract: Teacher research allows teachers to learn about their teaching and connect theory to practice through systematic self-study. This report examines eight US-based graduate students’ research projects while they were teaching EAP during a practicum in Thailand. Findings indicate that their projects took different forms, from action research to introspective analysis, which reflected the teacher-researchers’ emerging understandings of their instructional context and perspectives as teachers and researchers. This article presents profiles of three teacher-researchers’ studies to illustrate the varied forms and outcomes of their studies. Their study designs reflect the teachers’ choices of methods in response to contextual and personal factors.

  • Pop songs in the classroom: time-filler or teaching tool'
    • Authors: Tegge F.
      Pages: 274 - 284
      Abstract: Teachers frequently recommend pop songs on websites and in experience-based articles to foster L2 acquisition. Such a positive stance contrasts with a scarcity of musical activities in published materials for adult learners and the small number of empirical studies investigating the use and usefulness of songs in L2 teaching. Consequently, pedagogical choices and their implementation depend mainly on the course instructor. This article reports on the findings of an international survey exploring teachers’ beliefs about and teaching practices involving songs in the classroom. The findings reveal that informants often use songs as part of a purposeful and diverse teaching unit and based on reasoning that frequently reflects findings in cognitive-psychological research. However, song use can be impeded by a lack of official materials and support from other stakeholders.

  • ‘Tasks’ appearing in primary school textbooks
    • Authors: Butler Y; Kang K, Kim H, et al.
      Pages: 285 - 295
      Abstract: The use of tasks has become increasingly popular in primary school English-as-a-foreign-language programmes. However, it remains unclear how appropriate the tasks introduced in textbooks are for young learners given their cognitive and linguistic developmental needs. To explore this issue, we analysed activities appearing in select government-approved textbooks (for grades 3–6) and teacher resource books in China and South Korea where task-based language teaching is being implemented by policy. We found that most activities would be classified as non-tasks according to the conceptualization of tasks in the field, but also that there were challenges in making such judgements due to some vagueness in these conceptualizations. Moreover, the tasks in the textbooks were differentiated across grade levels mainly through the manipulation of linguistic elements, but not of cognitive demands, resulting in fewer opportunities for meaningful target language use needed to stimulate children’s language development.

  • Gamifying the flipped classroom using game-based learning materials
    • Authors: Hung H.
      Pages: 296 - 308
      Abstract: Many proponents of flipped classrooms have sought to develop innovative approaches in order to advance the knowledge base of effective practices. In this study, a gamified flipped classroom approach is thus proposed to help teachers design and incorporate classroom activities that can be engaging to students. The proposed approach combines the advantages of flipped classrooms and game-based learning, leveraging the use of technology-enhanced board games (TEBGs) to nurture student engagement. What distinguishes the TEBGs from common board games is the integration of Quick Response (QR) codes to deliver digital content via mobile technology. The research results suggest that the proposed approach is beneficial for English-language learners by reducing their anxiety about speaking English in class and enhancing their motivation to take part in classroom activities. It is thus hoped that more enthusiastic teachers will become early adopters of the gamified flipped classroom approach.

  • An experiment on gesture and fluency in two German schools
    • Authors: Janzen Ulbricht N.
      Pages: 309 - 318
      Abstract: Effective language-learning processes are key in multilingual societies, but past research on gesture and second-language acquisition has often focused on the relationship between gesture and cognition, but seldom on gesture as a teaching and learning tool. Although it is well established that gestures facilitate second-language learning, there is reason to think that different gestures may benefit children differentially. In the context of learning and performing a play, the experiment discussed in this article implements two English-language teaching methodologies, one with teacher gestures at the level of morphology and one with gestures at the sentence level. This experiment, with a diverse group of primary-school-age children, takes a naturalistic setting and shows that among the high and low performers there was a difference in long-term fluency development between the two experimental conditions. The data suggest that the fluency level of learners is predictive of which gesture type benefits fluency the most. Children who had a lower initial speech rate benefited more from teaching using gestures that are morphologically complex, whereas the children who had a higher initial speech rate benefited more from gestures at the sentence level.

  • Student responses to vocabulary learning strategies on an ESAP course
    • Authors: Clarke D.
      Pages: 319 - 328
      Abstract: Broadening vocabulary in a second language is often a key aim for students on language courses. This is especially the case for students who need to learn subject-specific academic vocabulary. There has been substantial research that focuses on the use of corpora for informing vocabulary instruction and materials development. However, selecting vocabulary from such lists and predicting the vocabulary gaps that students may have can be very challenging, particularly when the students have diverse educational and professional backgrounds. In response to this, the present study proposes and explores attitudes in relation to the use of vocabulary-learning strategies as part of a wider syllabus for students on an ESAP course. The findings of this research are particularly relevant to language teachers and course developers.

  • Iatefl
    • Pages: 351 - 351
      Abstract: IATEFL’s Inclusive Practices and SEN Special Interest Group (IP&SEN SIG) was launched in 2016. The idea for the SIG came from three current committee members: Anne Margaret Smith, Anette Igel and Varinder Unlu. We felt that considering the importance of inclusion and special needs education, the number of sessions addressing these issues at the annual IATEFL conference was not sufficient. We were keen to highlight these issues, encourage debate, raise awareness. Before we could approach IATEFL with the idea however, we had to find out if others also felt the need for such a SIG, so at the 2015 conference we spoke to as many delegates as we could to gauge interest. The response from everyone we spoke to was overwhelmingly positive and we had no difficulty in getting the support we needed in order to submit our initial proposal. Once the application had been submitted, it took a few months for the approval to come through from IATEFL and we were officially up and running by May 2016.
