Gholami, Leila; Gholami, Javad – Language Teaching Research, 2020
An extensive number of studies have examined the effectiveness of incidental focus on form (FonF) measured through uptake in primarily communicative activities and established an association between learners' uptake of linguistic features and their subsequent second language development. In this strand of research, the analysis of linguistic forms…

Johnson, Karen E.; Golombek, Paula R. – Language Teaching Research, 2020
Given emerging trends in where, why, how, and to what end English language teachers are being prepared, we argue that greater attention to the design, enactment, and consequences of language teacher education (LTE) pedagogy is critical in order to meet the needs of current and future English language teachers in an increasingly diverse, mobile,…

Cross, Russell – Language Teaching Research, 2020
This article focuses on reframing the 'who' of second language teacher education (SLTE), building on the framework laid out by Freeman and Johnson (FJ) in 1998 with particular attention to their notion of the teacher-as-learner. The first half of this article is conceptual, outlining one way I have found helpful for engaging with this notion since…

Van Canh, Le – Language Teaching Research, 2020
Situated in the Vietnamese context, this article argues that rather than sideline knowledge of learners in favour of subject matter knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge as the basis of the knowledge base of LTE, prominence should be given to knowledge of learners if teachers' competence to teach responsively is desired.

Murray, Denise E. – Language Teaching Research, 2020
English language teaching takes place in a variety of different contexts around the globe, contexts that are affected by the megatrends of global competition, population mobility, and technological interconnectedness.

Teemant, Annela – Language Teaching Research, 2020
New audiences, new theoretical understandings of cognitive development and teaching, and the moral imperative to reach all learners and teachers require reframing how we assess our effectiveness in ELT. In this article, I present four areas of LTE that require reframing: (1) Who we prepare (2) with what content (3) to competently participate in…

Freeman, Donald – Language Teaching Research, 2020
This article examines how the concept of a knowledge-base in language teacher education has changed since the 1998 proposal. Arguing that a knowledge-base evolves in two ways: through changes in the field of knowledge, and through changes driven by the work that knowledge supports, I describe two problems: 'translating' theory into practice and…

Macaro, Ernesto; Tian, Lili; Chu, Lingmin – Language Teaching Research, 2020
Although there is a wealth of research on the use of the first language (L1) in English as a foreign language (EFL) classrooms, there is as yet very little research of this kind in classrooms where the prime pedagogical objective is to teach academic content through English as a second language (English medium instruction; EMI). It is important to…

Yeldham, Michael – Language Teaching Research, 2020
This study examined the influence of formulaic language on second language (L2) listeners' lower-level processing, in terms of their ability to accurately identify the words in texts. On the one hand, there were reasons for expecting the presence of the formulas to advantage the learners, because the learners would process these formulaic words…

Peng, Jinfang; Wang, Chuming; Lu, Xiaofei – Language Teaching Research, 2020
Previous studies demonstrated that the continuation task has great language learning potential and that various task-related factors may affect the extent to which the potential can be exploited (e.g. Wang & Wang, 2015). This study investigates the effect of one understudied factor, the linguistic complexity of the input text, on English as a…
