ELT Journal invites submissions for a Special Issue focusing on `Teaching English to young learners'. By `young learners', we mean pre-school, primary level and teenage learners of English.
The Special Issue provides an opportunity to explore the principles and practice which underpin the teaching of English to young learners, and also to examine and discuss issues which are implicit in teaching young learners and teenagers in context, for example, the effects of educational policy; review, testing and evaluation procedures; young learner teacher training and education; and cultural concerns in the teaching of English to young learners and teenagers.
Some key areas which contributors could explore include, but are not limited to:
blended learning for young learners and teenagers
classroom practice, methods, and methodologies
CLIL for young learners and teenagers
educational policy and the teaching of young learners and teenagers
home language literacy skills versus English language literacy skills development
literature and teaching young learners
parents' roles and attitudes towards ELT for young learners and teenagers
researching the teaching of young learners
syllabus and curriculum development
young learner teacher training and education
young learners' assessment
is starting English instruction earlier really better?
Contributions are welcome from anyone involved in ELT. Contributors should consult the current online `Instructions to authors' before submitting articles, as this contains important information about the focus and format of articles. See our website: http://eltj.oxfordjournals.org
The deadline for submissions is 31st August 2013.
Articles should be submitted online via ELT Journal's ScholarOne Manuscripts system, and will be subject to anonymous peer review.
