Are you interested in how adults learn languages and how it could affect your teaching? Discussing research is a powerful form of professional development, informing our own teaching and contributing to the EFL community. However, there is often a frustrating lack of communication between researchers and teachers: time restrictions and practical considerations mean it isn’t always easy to apply research in the classroom.
I have recently started a website with this in mind. It aims to provide a place for teachers, researchers and students to exchange ideas about adult second language learning in addition to providing a platform for people to publish their own work.
The quality of the website is dependent on the input it receives. We need the involvement of EFL teachers: your opinions on some of the key issues in TEFL research and its implications for the classroom are vital to the site’s success. Also, if you have any research you would like to publish, or you would like some advice on how to do your own research in the classroom, we would love to hear from you. Your feedback is appreciated: if you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know!
