This Perspectives article proposes a renewed vision of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) through a translanguaging (TL) stance, grounded in critical sociolinguistic inquiry and embodied practice.

dela Cruz, John Wayne N. – TESL Canada Journal, 2022
Canadian multilingualism and multiculturalism are on the rise.

To further inform the practice of plurilingual pedagogies, this paper reports on results of a…

Suraweera, Dulani – TESL Canada Journal, 2022
While learning and teaching English as an additional language are lifelong learning processes for both learners and teachers, these two sectors are largely dominated by West-centric linguistic and cultural imperialism, epistemic hegemony, racism, and neoliberalism, which are tied to colonialism and imperialism. In light of this issue, I argue that…

We examine the pedagogical use of LLs as resources for the implementation of plurilingual…

Riches, Caroline; Parks, Philippa – TESL Canada Journal, 2022
Linguistic identity is deeply embedded in how individuals identify within groups and cultures (Gee, 2000; Sachs, 2005). The contexts of English as a second language (ESL) teaching in Quebec and ESL teachers' range of linguistic repertoires provide an interesting landscape for considering issues of identity, equity, and acceptance (De Costa &…

Falhasiri, Mohammad – TESL Canada Journal, 2022
For corrective feedback (CF) to contribute to second language (L2) development, some cognitive processes need to be completed. Learners need to notice and comprehend the CF, reflect on and deeply process it, and finally integrate it into their interlanguage (Gass, 1997). Written languaging (WL), which requires learners to explicitly explain to…

Kerekes, Julie; Rajendram, Shakina; Owoo, Mama Adjetey-Nii; Zhang, Yiran – TESL Canada Journal, 2022
Supporting Ontario's diverse multilingual learners (MLs) requires more than "just good teaching" (de Jong & Harper, 2005, p. 102). MLs' success is tied to specific teacher knowledge, attitudes, and pedagogical moves based on linguistically responsive teaching (Lucas & Villegas, 2013). This study investigated the perspectives of…
