Mahan, Karina Rose – Language Learning Journal, 2022
Teaching through a second language (L2) poses many challenges, as second language learners (SLLs) have fewer linguistic resources in the language of instruction. Scaffolding students' learning is a possible way of overcoming these challenges, but there are few studies on this in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) contexts. The present…

Woore, Robert – Language Learning Journal, 2022

Lanvers, Ursula; Graham, Suzanne – Language Learning Journal, 2022
With the UK entering its fourth decade of this crisis with no end in sight, it is timely to ask how current policy directions for language learning beyond the compulsory phase (currently age 14 in all 4 UK nations) align with learners' psychological needs in relation to language learning.
