This volume presents a survey of the latest results and discussions in the research on English Language Teaching (ELT), bringing together researchers from four continents and 11 different countries to discuss current topics and issues in the field. In doing so, it offers a debate in a conducive and intellectually charged environment which enables the reader to gain insights into new technologies, ideas and concepts of practitioners working at very different research and teaching institutions. The papers collected in this volume provide ample evidence of the lively atmosphere and the interesting conversations present in ELT in recent years.Much has changed in the research of ELT; the field has become more technical and applied on the one hand and more theoretically informed on the other. As such, it is a particular achievement of this volume that it enables the diverse disciplines under the umbrella of ELT to communicate and exchange their approaches. It is in this way that linguists can talk to methodologists and cultural studies scholars cooperate with literary scholars. The tripartite structure of this book reflects this. The first part is dedicated to linguistic issues and contains a number of both large-scale and micro-scale studies. The second section collects papers from the cultural and literary studies field. The concluding segment concerns new approaches in methodology and offers two very technical contributions on CLIL.
