Materials and Methods in ELT is an essential resource for teachers or for those engaged in taking professional courses relating to all aspects of English language teaching. Now available in its 3rd edition, this popular teachers’ guide offers a comprehensive and useful introduction to the principles and practice of teaching English as a foreign/second language. It examines the ideas behind current methodology and teaching materials, in addition to offering a practical guide to approaching materials and methods, evaluation and adaptation, technology for materials and methods, and teaching in under-resourced classrooms. These principles are then related to the individual language skills of reading, listening, speaking, and writing. The authors examine the different methodologies available to teachers for organizing and running an ELT classroom; discussing group and pair work, individualization, classroom observation, and the teachers’ role in the contemporary ELT context. Updated throughout, the 3rd edition features a new section on technology for materials and methods, as well as a new chapter on IT in English language teaching, and inclusion of new samples from current teaching materials.

This volume represents an outgrowth of the 7th international ATECR conference, which brought together researchers and educators from fields as diverse as language teaching in a variety of contexts, corpus linguistics and literary studies. The contributions in this volume show— despite their diversity—a strong common denominator: an aim to bundle efforts and unify parameters in order to optimize English Language Teaching as a world-wide endeavor. Thus, for our teaching it can only be beneficial when linguists talk to literary-minded teachers or methodology specialists investigate whether their theoretical underpinnings make their way into practice by talking to language instructors or language service providers. In general, the authors present a multifaceted picture of the English Language Teaching context with themselves as practitioners but also as investigators and researchers at the same time. The research that reflects back on their teaching thus creates a force-feedback loop not only for the investigating scholar but also for the practicing instructor who reapplies his/her knowledge after failed or suboptimal attempts as evidenced by the data.

This book explores implications for applied linguistics of recent developments in technologies used in second language teaching and assessment, language analysis, and language use. Focusing primarily on English language learning, the book identifies significant areas of interplay between technology and applied linguistics, and it explores current perspectives on perennial questions such as how theory and research on second language acquisition can help to inform technology-based language learning practices, how the multifaceted learning accomplished through technology can be evaluated, and how theoretical perspectives can offer insight on data obtained from research on interaction with and through technology. The book illustrates how the interplay between technology and applied linguistics can amplify and expand applied linguists’ understanding of fundamental issues in the field. Through discussion of computer-assisted approaches for investigating second language learning tasks and assessment, it illustrates how technology can be used as a tool for applied linguistics research.

This thought-provoking and informative collection of essays covers a broad spectrum of topics including: • Why the communicative approach is dead and what to do about it • How to implement blended learning in day-to-day English teaching • Virtual worlds and why English teachers should get a second life • The different roles played by the language teacher • The value of translation in language teaching • Whether native English speakers really make better teachers • Why you should NOT be teaching International English • A more effective way to teach Technical English • The truth about Superlearning and suggestopaedia • The secret to being a good English teacher And as you might expect from a book subtitled what you always wanted to know about teaching English but were afraid to ask, it even includes a chapter on teaching the English of that forbidden subject, sex. Also released for the first time in book form are chapters on the author’s unique insight into the correlation between language, set theory and fractal mathematics – and the consequences for English teachers. ‘Controversy is evident from the very first chapter ... it was high time to dust off the cobwebs in the EFL/ELT business.’ ‘This book provides a refreshing look at old concepts, opens our eyes to new perspectives and encourages teachers to venture along new paths.’ – Elke Schulth, Chair of ELTAS

The growing interest in working with media, particularly the new digital media, in the EFL classroom is reflected in the ten articles of this volume. Their focus is specifically on "traditional" visual media such as films and video clips, but also on blogs, podcasts, digital storytelling, hyperfictions, Internet projects, creating learner software, etc. As the articles either explicitly or implicitly indicate, these new media formats are suitable for integration into current action- or task-based teaching forms. All articles aim to foster nuanced judgments on literature, culture, and popular media in the US. The media discussed here mirror the multiplicity of voices within the US, indicating the tremendous variety of cultural and political positions. They undermine lopsided and biased attitudes toward American mass media, forcing the learner to discuss critical positions within the US and to modify stereotypical media judgements.

This is the first, and long awaited work on critical approaches to teaching English for the purposes of democracy and social justice that challenges the current views of ELT, such as English being merely a tool for communication or the acquisition of basic skills or high test scores for advancement in education and the marketplace. - A timely work and a fresh look at critical approaches to ELT in Asia. - An invaluable work that simultaneously problematizes current ELT practices while introducing new possibilities for critical practices in localized contexts in Asia. - An important work that shines a light on how the forces of globalization not only dictate the spread of English as an international language, but how these forces also dictate what is taught and how. - An informative view on how ELT practices are being re-envisioned by critical educators in Asia. This groundbreaking volume, compiling critical perspectives of English language teaching in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, and Sri Lanka, confronts colonial legacies observed in educational practices and policies that perpetuate a divide between the privileged and the underprivileged. ?The critical reflections scrutinize the nature of English as a commodified gatekeeper and simultaneously provide alternative visions for language education. - Ryuko Kubota, Professor, The university of British Columbia.

Internet memes have a prominent role in online communities and have created a new linguistic variety of English - Memespeak. The aim of this thesis was therefore to evaluate the relevance of Internet memes amongst teenage learners and to prove that Internet memes have significant potential for use in ELT. This dissertation first focuses on the change that the English language and its roles have been undergoing, on the characteristics of Internet memes and Memespeak and on the potential of memes in ELT. It then presents the findings of a questionnaire regarding teenagers' Internet habits and their knowledge of Internet memes and results of an experiment where memes and the Lexical Approach were employed to teach the use of "must for speculation". The findings suggest that teenagers, especially older male participants, have a good overall knowledge of memes and would feel motivated by their incorporation into the teaching routine. The exper-iment also confirmed that teaching with memes has a tangible positive result on the learners' awareness of the chosen grammar structure, proving that teaching with memes is a viable ap-proach.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Speech Science / Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät Institut für Anglistik), course: English as a World Language, language: English, abstract: The present paper puts a focus on the contribution of the Internet genre “Netspeak” for the English language. In the context of English as a global language the paper firstly examines the status of the English language on the World Wide Web today for both native speakers (NS) and non-native speakers (NNS) and tries to describe in which ways these two groups use English to perform a wide range of communicative functions. Furthermore, the paper describes the relatively new term “Netspeak” and provides an overview of some distinctive linguistic features and patterns of this specific genre of ‘electronically mediated communication’ (Chrystal 2010). In addition “Netspeak” is defined as a genre and the present paper gives explanations why it can be considered to be closely connected to the concept of community of practice. Finally the educational implications of “Netspeak” for English Language Teaching (ELT) will be discussed together with a proposal for a teaching unit about “Netspeak”.
