Issues in Foreign Language Teaching and Teacher Development: Reflection and Analysis

30,00 zł

Until its closure in 2019, the Applied Linguistics Department at the University of Silesia’s Institute of English Studies undertook exploratory research into the teaching and learning of English as a foreign language. The research, reflective of the breadth of interests of the department’s staff, addressed the multifaceted nature of language and its pedagogy, focussing on the parties involved, as well as the process’s complexities and intertwining themes. This volume provides a review of the most recent research by former staff members, and as such brings to bear the processes of analysis and reflection on evolving trends in teacher education and English language teaching.
