A new year and a new look to WWW.TESOLacademic.org – hope you like it! The most recent keynote is by Prof. Jenkins who talks about her work in English as a lingua franca – for 2011 we look forward to keynotes from Neil Anderson and Alastair Penycook. The most recent contribution to our Book authors and eds. section in by Widen who talks about “illegitimate practices” which highlights a darker side to TESOL! Finally, the most recent contribution to our Research papers section is an interesting talk by Ryan on mindsets in EFL and learner beliefs about a natural talent for languages.
My challenge for 2011 is to find a patron to support the work of the site – any suggestions anyone?
