More ESL / EFL Journals

September 19th, 2007 by Dave · No Comments

I recently came across the online journal section of Larry Ferlazzo’s website. He has links to several online ESL journals that I didn’t have on my journal page. When I have time to look at them, I’ll add them to my list of journals, and give each a brief review. Here they are in the meantime, along with a brief description of each taken from their respective websites.

Humanising Language Teaching – “HLT deals with areas like error correction, the creative teaching of grammar, attentive listening comprehension, enjoyable reading, motivating speaking activities, teaching vocabulary effectively, creative writing, using music and fine arts in the classroom, drama work, group dynamics, dealing with difficulties, and preparing students for tests, just to name a few.”

ESL MiniConference Online – “When ESL/EFL practitioners go to a conference, there is almost a kind of electricity in the air. We rekindle relationships with colleagues, share insights from experience and celebrate our profession. The
ESL MiniConference Online seeks to keep that conference spirit going all year round!” They also offer a podcast.

ELL Outlook – “ELL Outlook is a bi-monthly e-newsletter dedicated to providing the latest research, news, program models, and interviews with ELL [English language learner] researchers, educators, and policymakers.”

CAELA Currents – “CAELA Currents is published quarterly by the Center for Adult English Language Acquisition at the Center for Applied Linguistics and is offered free of charge.”

OELA Newsline – “OELA Newsline is the electronic news digest for the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition, Language Enhancement, and Academic Achievement for Limited English Proficient Students (OELA). Newsline is updated regularly with current information about the education of English language learners —including news from the U.S. Department of Education, news from the field, and items of interest such as conference announcements, publication announcements, and job opportunities.”

* This last one is not from Larry’s website. I came across it while looking at Humanising Language Teaching.

The Teacher Trainer Journal – “Our aim is to provide a forum for ideas, information and news, to put fellow professionals in touch with each other and to give all those involved in training, mentoring and educating teachers a feeling of how trainers in other fields operate as well as building up a pool of experience within our own field. The journal comes out three times a year and makes use of a variety of formats e.g. articles, letters, comments, quotations, interviews, cartoons, spoofs. If the idea is good and useful to trainers, we’ll print it no matter what voice you choose to express it in.”
