  • Prospects of Internationalising Higher Education in Morocco: A Digital
           Citizenship Perspective

    • Authors: TAOUFIK ALAOUI HICHAMI; SANA SAKALE
      Abstract: Considering the progress in research and innovation in higher education, promoting social change is a must to face the multifarious barriers that hinder the process of internationalising higher education in Morocco. Therefore, an implementation of Digital Citizenship (Ribble and Bailey, 2007; Mossberger and Tolbert, 2008; Ribble, 2012; Choi, 2016; Ribble and Park, 2019; Whitehead, 2019) provides opportunities for the internationalisation of the curriculum in higher education in Morocco. This quantitative study explores possibilities of internationalising higher education in Morocco by dealing with some Digital Citizenship elements to enhance collaboration on research between institutions, to increase awareness of the need for social change and to bridge the gap between university professors and students. The results show that Digital Citizenship is a prerequisite for higher education in Morocco to keep up with technological progress, call for social change and forge stronger links between Moroccan universities and their peers worldwide.

  • The Effect of Digital Storytelling on English Vocabulary Learning in
           Inclusive and Diverse Education

    • Authors: Jose Belda-Medina; Max Benjamin Goddard
      Abstract: Despite a rich body of research on digital storytelling within language education, studies focusing on its effects from an inclusive perspective remain scarce. This paper addresses the gap by exploring the impact of digital storytelling on vocabulary learning through an inclusive and diverse lens. It aims to fill this gap by pursuing three primary objectives: (1) examining pre-service teachers' prior knowledge of digital storytelling usage, (2) evaluating teacher candidates' digital skills in creating collaborative digital stories from an inclusive viewpoint, and (3) measuring the effect of using these inclusive digital stories on vocabulary learning among children aged 8-10. Employing a mixed-methods research design based on convenience sampling, the study involved 62 second-year college students from a teacher education program and 112 primary education children aged 8-10. The teacher candidates were first introduced to the benefits and limitations of digital storytelling in EFL contexts, followed by the creation of 12 digital stories reflecting an inclusive perspective, which were later implemented with the children. Quantitative and qualitative data were gathered through pre-post-tests, questionnaires, and class discussion, and analyzed using SPSS for quantitative analysis and QDA Miner for qualitative analysis. The findings revealed that teacher candidates exhibited proficient digital and critical thinking skills necessary for creating effective digital stories. The results showed a positive impact on vocabulary learning related to inclusive and diverse education among children, contributing to the understanding of digital storytelling's role in enhancing vocabulary acquisition and supporting the integration of inclusive digital narratives in language education.

  • Critical Pedagogy: Investigating Critical Thinking Skills and Active
           Citizenship through Discourse Analysis in a Moroccan EFL Textbook

    • Authors: RACHID BENDRAOU
      Abstract: Critical pedagogy is an educational philosophy that aims to empower individuals and promote significant societal change. Paulo Freire emphasized the importance of using a dialogic approach as a teaching method to increase students' understanding of social issues by exposing them to difficult learning situations. Through this process, students cultivate their creativity, capacity for problem-solving, sociological consciousness, and advanced cognitive abilities. Therefore, curriculum designers should integrate pedagogical practices that conform to the identical standards of teacher-student rapport. This allows students to forge connections with the world and engage in a critical examination of it. Furthermore, it assists individuals in analyzing and assessing the information they acquire, whether it is communicated consciously or unconsciously, in relation to the social interactions and propaganda they encounter. This study aims to examine the extent to which Ticket to English 2, a designated Moroccan English as a Foreign Language (EFL) textbook, enhances students' critical thinking skills and encourages active citizenship in society. The analysis was carried out using progressive and critical discourse analysis, employing Fairclough's dimensions as a potential framework.

           Systematic Literature Review

    • Authors: Rufino; Gilliane G.
      Abstract: Challenges await in giving and receiving English instructions. One way globalization proposes to create a fun, engaging, and fulfilling setting for English language education is the appropriate use of YouTube. This paper is a systematic review of literature on the use of YouTube in teaching and learning the English language. It also followed thematic content analysis via manual coding. Eligibility criteria were prepared before going to Google Scholar and ERIC databases to look for studies that could be used. PRISMA Flowchart was used to show how the researcher only had 46 articles for this study. PICO Framework was utilized to summarize the data gathered and aid the researcher in asking the question, “How was YouTube used for teaching and learning the English language' and “What specific skills are developed in the use of YouTube for teaching and learning English'”. The results constructed Horizontal, Intersecting, Vertical, Parallel, and Spiral methods for English instruction. It also revealed that speaking, pronunciation, listening, self-learning, comprehension, grammar, reading and writing improved. Future researchers can work on guidelines for selecting content or using YouTube for teaching and learning the English language.

  • A Corpus-based Comparative Study of Translation Style of Five English
           Versions of Xiao Yaoyou

    • Authors: Fan Tianqi
      Abstract: This study utilizes a corpus-based approach to investigate the translation style of five English versions of Xiao Yaoyou, the first chapter of Zhuangzi, at three levels: lexical, syntactic, and philosophical and cultural lexis. By comparing and analyzing the corpus data, the paper examines different linguistic traits among five versions. It shows that versions translated by earlier translators tend to be more complex and more formal with a higher standardized TTR, a higher degree of mean word length and average sentence length. In contrast, recent translators have chosen rather simpler and concise vocabularies, which makes their version exhibit a higher degree of readability in rendering the original text. The analyses of philosophical and cultural terms shed light on the academic experience and cultural considerations that account for the similarities and differences between these versions.

  • The Grammatical Features of Vietnamese Journalistic Discourses about Women
           from Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis Theory

    • Authors: Gam Thi Huyen Tran; Dung Thi Xuan Do
      Abstract: Basing principally on Fairclough's theory of Critical Discourse Analysis (2001) and Halliday's Systemic Functional Grammar (1994), Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis was initiated in “Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis - Gender, Power and Ideology in Discourse” by Lazar (2005) is developed into a discourse research approach that sheds interest on the relationship between gender power and language or language use. Following this research approach, this paper outlines a detailed study of the grammatical features of journalistic discourse written about women in Vietnamese Women Newspapers, issues of 2021, from the perspectives of Feminist Critical Discourse Analysis, of which the grammatical features of journalistic discourse would be expressed in three aspects: experiential, interpersonal, and expressive values. More specifically, the experiential values of grammar were reflected in the transitivity processes, the interpersonal values were shown in modes of sentences, and finally, the expressive values were realized in the expressive modality. The study results revealed that the three most frequently used processes were material, relational and verbal. Besides, declarative sentence type was used most frequently, and there was very little likelihood of modal word use. These grammatical features were consistent with the news genre applied for newspapers while remaining ample contextual conditions for reflecting journalists' perceptions of women and feminism.

  • Engaging Students in The Learning Process with Game-Based Learning

    • Authors: Phan Thanh Tuan; Nguyen Thi Ha Phuong, Nguyen Thanh Nam
      Abstract: Recently, a novel method of instruction—the use of educational games—has gained traction, particularly in the teaching of English. The method of teaching English using educational games to non-native speakers who use the language as a second or foreign language has shown remarkable results. An inventive framework for implementing the educational games learning strategy at universities is offered by this research. This is done to provide pupils with chances for interdisciplinary learning and lifetime learning. In order to address gaming and learning, the research presents social skills and knowledge training. It explains the desired learning point as well as the part that game aspects play in student engagement and the interplay between educational gaming material and students. The fundamental building blocks for developing social and cognitive abilities are the collaborative learning concepts, which are further discussed in the research. Further research links game-based learning's benefits to the development and enhancement of attitude. The research also looks at three theories: engagement theory, problem-solving theory, and narrative-centered learning theory. These ideas are crucial to the creation of the game-based learning strategy. The study goes on to discuss instructors' opinions on the game-based learning technique after giving its theoretical foundation. There is also a discussion of the benefits and drawbacks of game-based learning.

  • The Use of Podcasts for Language Learning: A Systematic Review of
           Literature

    • Authors: Michaela G. Ramirez
      Abstract: Podcasts, which are digital recordings, are a very popular technical tool for language learning, especially for English language learners. Podcasts are particularly appealing to the younger generation since they are flexible and allow learners to access language-learning materials at any time and from any location. By evaluating multiple journal articles released between 2013 and 2023, eighteen (18) papers were identified that meet the eligibility criteria for the study following the PRISMA 2020. The aim of this systematic review is to investigate the benefits and drawbacks of using podcasts as a language learning method. The results show that podcasts can be a useful tool for enhancing motivation and language proficiency. Due to the lack of possibilities for critical analysis and evaluation, there are reservations about their usage in English language instruction.

  • Study on the Translation of Culture-loaded Words in The File No.113

    • Authors: Li Mengxin
      Abstract: All nations in the world have generated many culture-loaded words full of cultural origin and emotional attachment in the evolution of social life. Due to the huge differences between Chinese and Western cultures, it is difficult for translators to find the equivalent expression when translating culture-loaded words. Chen Hongbi is an outstanding female translator in modern times, and her translation of the English detective novel Le Dossier No.113 was very popular in the late Qing Dynasty. From the perspective of eco-translatology, this study takes Chen Hongbi's The File No.113(《第一百十三案》) as an example and analyzes the translation of culture-loaded words in the text. In the late Qing Dynasty, the social demand for female intellectuals, the academic demand for detective novels and the interest demand of publishing houses formed a sound ecological environment for Chen's translation of foreign detective novels. Chen adapted himself to this ecological environment with his translation ability and love for detective novels, thus choosing to translate Le Dossier No.113. In the process of translation, Chen reaches the adaptation and transformation of culture-loaded words from three dimensions linguistic dimension, cultural dimension and communicative dimension. This study describes how Chen Hongbi accurately conveys the meaning of culture-loaded words to the target readers based on the ecological environment of translation through the mechanism of "selection" and "adaptation", which is helpful to understand and explain the choices made by the translators in order to realize the communicative intention and adapt to the context of the late Qing Dynasty. By analyzing Chen's successful translation of the detective novel, this study hopes to make readers realize the value of her translation as well as her adaptation and selection in translation so as to provide references for future translators to consider deep adaptation and selection when translating culture-loaded words.
