      Abstract: As the end of 2017 approaches, change is afoot at ELT Journal. From January 2018, the Journal will have a new editor as my five-year tenure in the role draws to a close. Throughout that time, I have worked with a wide range of people who have contributed a great deal to the continued success of the Journal, and the publication of each issue has very much been the result of successful teamwork. It is impossible to thank everyone individually in the limited space of an editorial column, but a few names must be mentioned. As Reviews Editor, Alessia Cogo has been a wonderful colleague throughout my time editing the Journal, selecting key publications for review, finding a range of internationally-based expert reviewers, developing the ‘Review Forum’ feature, and ensuring each issue of ELT Journal has a range of interesting and informative reviews. Richard Smith and David Baker, as editors of the regular features ‘Key concepts in ELT’ and ‘Changing English’, have also made tremendous contributions to the Journal, as has Nicky Hockly, through her ‘Technology for the language teacher’ series.

  • Informal and deliberate learning with new technologies
    • Authors: Trinder R.
      Pages: 401 - 412
      Abstract: AbstractDue to the ready availability of new technologies, opportunities for the incidental as well as deliberate practice of English have multiplied and far exceed what can be done in more formal environments. Yet, despite the sizeable literature on the classroom-based use of specific digital resources, few studies have investigated how students evaluate increased exposure to English in terms of learning potential. This article argues that online informal learning of English deserves more attention, and presents an empirical study surveying Austrian university students’ practices and preferences related to new media in independent settings. The participants’ perceptions of the usefulness of a range of digital resources for the acquisition of language skills are analysed and juxtaposed with their opinions on in-class use of technology. Results indicate a clear preference for well-established, time-honoured media (film, online dictionaries, email) in self-regulated contexts, as well as diverging opinions on the use of technologies in classroom settings.

  • The affordances of digital multimodal composing for EFL learning
    • Authors: Jiang L.
      Pages: 413 - 422
      Abstract: AbstractThere is growing interest in using digital multimodal composing (DMC) as an integral part of ELT pedagogy. While the use of DMC for multiliteracies development is well documented, the important question of how DMC can facilitate English learning is underexplored, particularly in EFL contexts. Drawing on findings from a DMC programme in China, this article investigates the affordances of DMC for EFL learning. Data from interviews and written reflections show that the integration of DMC in an EFL curriculum made available a range of technological, educational, and social affordances to students, with multifaceted and interconnected impacts on their EFL learning. The findings also show that it is possible to link DMC to students’ print-based literacy learning in EFL classrooms. Finally, this study proposes a framework to show how the affordances can facilitate students’ engagement with English learning. Implications for using DMC are also discussed.

      Abstract: AbstractExperienced teachers are introduced to classroom practice innovations during in-service education and training (INSET) programmes. Teachers return to particular teaching contexts in schools and other institutions after INSET and it is here teachers implement innovations and change classroom practice. However, this implementation is not certain; teachers may reject change and discontinue innovations. Research on innovation diffusion suggests that reinvention of innovations—adapting to local situations—can increase the rate of innovation implementation. Findings from this research, on teacher change in the context of Chinese tertiary EFL teachers attending INSET, show that a teacher’s ability and willingness to reinvent classroom practice innovations are likely to have an impact on later implementation and continuation of changes to classroom practice. INSET providers and trainers should take into account the function of reinvention for experienced teachers implementing educational innovations, and encourage reinvention during and after INSET courses.

  • Interrogating your wisdom of practice to improve classroom practices
    • Authors: Chappell P.
      Pages: 433 - 444
      Abstract: AbstractThis article presents a heuristic for language teachers to articulate and explore their fundamental theories of and philosophical stances towards language, language learning, and language teaching. It includes tools with which teachers can interrogate those theories, weighing them up against their actual classroom practices. Through presenting data from a recent project investigating language teacher cognition and practices, it is demonstrated that language teachers vary in the extent to which they are able to articulate their theoretical and philosophical perspectives, and also in the extent that those theories reflect what they do in their classrooms. The article is intended to support language teachers in making sustained improvements to their classroom routines through a systematic approach to exploring their personal theories and stances towards their practice.

  • Songs in the young learner classroom: a critical review of evidence
    • Authors: Davis G.
      Pages: 445 - 455
      Abstract: AbstractSongs have been a common feature of young learner classrooms for decades, and numerous publications describe how songs should be employed in order to improve motivation and facilitate the acquisition of various aspects of language, including vocabulary, grammar, pronunciation, and listening skills. However, empirical research examining the effects of songs as used in young learner classrooms remains scarce. This article reviews nine such studies in order to draw general conclusions and pedagogical implications. Findings indicate that songs may be effective at promoting vocabulary acquisition and improving classroom motivation in young learners; other aspects of language such as pronunciation, general oral proficiency, and receptive skills have received little focus in the empirical literature but the research that does exist also shows promising results.

  • Using vocabulary notebooks for vocabulary acquisition and teaching
    • Authors: Dubiner D.
      Pages: 456 - 466
      Abstract: AbstractVocabulary knowledge is recognized as an essential element for second language acquisition and reading comprehension. One known way to encourage and support vocabulary development amongst second language learners is keeping a vocabulary notebook. The primary purpose of the present study was to document two aspects of student teachers’ own development: (1) linguistic (expansion of their own vocabulary) and (2) pedagogical (internalization of the approach and their readiness/willingness to use vocabulary notebooks in class; empathy towards their own students; and comprehension of the learning processes in light of their own successes and failures in vocabulary acquisition). Participants were 13 third-year students in an English teaching programme at a teachers’ college in Israel. A mixed methodology was implemented. Results indicate positive outcomes in target vocabulary acquisition and retention. Results are discussed from theoretical and pedagogical perspectives.

  • Language learners’ and teachers’ perceptions of task
    • Authors: Ahmadian M; Mansouri S, Ghominejad S.
      Pages: 467 - 477
      Abstract: AbstractThis study examined how English language learners and teachers perceive and interpret task repetition (TR), and whether teachers’ and learners’ views about this pedagogic practice correspond. In addition, the study explored learners’ cognitive and affective engagement with TR. We asked eight experienced language teachers to use a structured picture description task in their classes and then to repeat it after a one-week interval. Immediately after the second task performance, all eight language teachers and 21 language learners who had performed the two tasks participated in semi-structured interviews. The results of thematic analysis revealed that although students’ and teachers’ views about TR were similar in many respects, there were important issues on which teachers’ and learners’ perceptions and interpretations differed widely. We also found evidence demonstrating that learners were cognitively and affectively engaged in TR.

  • The (ir)relevance of academic research for the language teacher
    • Authors: Medgyes P.
      Pages: 491 - 498
      Abstract: AbstractIt is a fact that a very low proportion of practising teachers are in the habit of reading ELT-related research papers. The main cause of this neglect is assumed to be that teaching and researching are two distinct forms of activity with no links to connect them. After comparing the concepts of progress and change in research versus teaching, this article discusses the issue of relevance encapsulated in the question: ‘Who needs whom'’. Whereas it is a matter of utmost importance for researchers to reach out to teachers, the opposite does not apply: teachers can do well without outsiders’ intervention. It is time, therefore, to accord more prominence to the ‘teacher-inquirer’, who is a professional capable of analysing their work on their own and exchanging their knowledge and experience with fellow teachers.

  • ‘Only connect’: researchers and teachers in dialogue
    • Authors: Paran A.
      Pages: 499 - 508
      Abstract: AbstractThis article responds to recent critiques of the usefulness of research findings to teaching, and the call for teachers to rely on their experiences and intuition. I discuss the fallibility of intuition and then examine the nature of research and of critical thinking and their importance for teachers and teacher education. I provide evidence of how research has been able to broaden and deepen our understanding of teaching and learning in ways that can be applied to both the classroom and to language teaching materials. I end by exploring the ways in which researchers and teachers in the area of second language teaching can continue to support each other: on initial teacher education programmes; through the materials made available to teachers; throughout continuing professional development; and through teacher research. Most importantly, I stress the value of maintaining a two-way dialogue between EFL teachers and researchers.

  • A response to Amos Paran
    • Authors: Medgyes P.
      Pages: 509 - 510
      Abstract: In my article, I questioned the relevance of ELT-related academic research for the language teacher. In his response, Paran starts by saying that teachers’ experiences and intuitions are often misleading and unreliable (pp. 2–3); I could not agree more. Therefore, he argues, teachers should turn to research evidence for doing a better job. Indeed, ‘evidence’ is the key word in his lexicon: it is used 30 times throughout his article.

  • Activity
    • Authors: Hunter D.
      Pages: 516 - 518
      Abstract: ‘Activity’ is a high-frequency term in ELT professional discourse. Along with ‘activities’, it appears in the title or abstract of no fewer than 85 articles published in ELT Journal since January 2000,11 easily outnumbering other key concepts such as ‘autonomy’/‘autonomous’ (37 articles over the same period) and even ‘motivation’/‘motivate’ (53 articles). One reason for this is the wide range of meanings that ‘activity’ can convey. The Collins English Dictionary (2007: 17) indicates two main uncountable senses—‘the state or quality of being active’ and ‘lively action or movement’—as well as the countable meaning that underpins the way it is commonly used in ELT discourse: ‘any specific deed, action, pursuit’. In ELT professional talk, “activity” is deployed so flexibly and frequently that distinctions between its various meanings often go unexamined. But the very centrality of ‘activity’ to our discourse, the property of the term that can render it almost invisible to its users, is also an excellent reason to investigate it carefully as a professional concept.
