White, Cynthia; Pham, Cuong – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
While time and context have been found to have both synergistic and cumulative effects on language learners' cognitive and socio-affective development, time itself remains under-conceptualised in those processes. Drawing on the Bakhtinian construct of chronotope Bakhtin [(1981). "The Dialogic Imagination: Four Essays". Translated by…

Erduyan, Isil – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
In his model of classroom social identification and learning, Wortham (2006. "Learning Identity".

Al-Murtadha, Mutahar; Feryok, Anne – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
Unwillingness to communicate (UWTC) was initially conceptualized as a trait-like predisposition in L1 studies, but later research shifted the focus to willingness to communicate (WTC). In second language acquisition, WTC was introduced as a situational construct where time is highlighted by the immediate context of decision to communicate.…

Tasker, Isabel – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
People studying an additional language in adult life do so through a diverse mix of self-directed and institutionally-situated efforts, extending over many years; and online and distance mode language learning offer increasingly flexible opportunities for formal study. Little is known, however, of the ways that long-term learners combine…

This article engages with diachronic analysis, an analysis of changes over time, as it relates to the field of language planning and policy (LPP) through a case study of a local language problem: the introduction of Chinese language into an established government school over a 10-year period. Using cultural-historical activity theory, expanding…

Begic, Ines; Mercer, Sarah – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
Every individual has a different perspective on time, known as "temporal perspective". A person's orientation and attitude towards time can have a profound effect on their behaviour and motivation. In Second Language Acquisition, a variety of work has considered learners and their behaviours from various temporal perspectives. However,…

Oxford, Rebecca L. – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2017
Time factors complexly, dynamically interact with each other and with other contextualized variables in language learning. The time-tied nature of language learning is captured in what I call the "time-prism," which is the central symbol of temporality in this paper. The facets of the prism discussed in this article are (1) language…

Criado, Raquel – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2016
This article presents a framework for the elaboration of Foreign Language Teaching (FLT) grammar materials for adults based on the application to SLA of Skill Acquisition Theory (SAT). This theory is argued to compensate for the major drawbacks of FLT settings in comparison with second language contexts (lack of classroom learning time and limited…

Timmis, Ivor – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2016
In this article, I argue that the most important thing about coursebook dialogues is not whether they are "authentic" or "inauthentic" but whether they are "plausible" as human interaction and behaviour. Coursebook dialogues are often constructed as vehicles for various kinds of language work and even sometimes as…

Sung, Chit Cheung Matthew – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2016
As a result of the global presence of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), it has been argued that learners of English should be exposed to a range of varieties of English, rather than a single variety of English, so that they can be better prepared to communicate with other people in ELF communication. However, little is known about second language…

Karimi, Mohammad Nabi; Abdullahi, Khadijeh; Haghighi, Jaber Khales – Innovation in Language Learning and Teaching, 2016
The correspondence/non-correspondence of teachers' beliefs and their instructional practices has recently gained wide recognition in language teaching research. The general conclusion from the line of research investigating this issue points to the fact that there is not always a necessary correspondence between what teachers state as their…
