A practical approach to preparing learner TESOL teachers for the realities of a real classroom
Includes tasks, discussion questions and data-based vignettes from diverse contexts of language teachers
Takes a reflective approach to TESOL teacher education that starts in pre-service education but extends the educational experiences to ‘novice-service TESOL teacher education’
Encourages self-assessment in collaborative interactions with teacher educators, mentors, and supervisors
A 200 hour teacher education program, often heavily focused on theory and where practice is left to short field experiences cannot provide you with everything that you will need when working in a real classroom. In this book Thomas Farrell addresses two problems within TESOL teacher education – the perceived gap between theory and practice and the lack of contact with newly qualified teachers. Farrell outlines how to prepare for the realities of what you will face when beginning your career through reflective activities that include: case-based teaching, teaching metaphor analysis, critical incident analysis, and teacher identity analysis. Including data-based vignettes from diverse contexts of language teachers, you are able to gain practical insights from language teacher education courses. Whether a learner teacher or teacher educator, this book presents new insights into the reality of TESOL teacher education.

How do written and other signs shape our educational spaces and practices; and how, in turn, are these written and other signs shaped by the educational spaces and practices they inhabit? Building on enquiries into the linguistic landscapes of public spaces, this volume addresses these questions and thereby further advances the educational turn in linguistic and semiotic landscapes studies. Prompted by social changes associated with migration and superdiversity, as well as imperatives to promote pluri- and multilingualism, the studies collected here speak to the interest of researchers and practitioners in educational linguistics and educational sciences. They confirm the value of combining empirical analyses of linguistic and semiotic educationscapes with action research on mobilising linguistic landscapes as pedagogical resources to promote multilingual equality.
- 06/05/2022 | 9People familiar with the two languages generally have the impression that Basque and English could not be more different. While this may certainly be true in terms of their more superficial features, they are more similar than one might at first suspect in their internal structure. This book explores this apparent dichotomy. Some may also feel that reflecting on the nature of language is the pastime of fools, and though to some extent that may be true, by seasoning with abundant references to literature and cinema, history and folktales, songs and even gastronomy, reflections on language can become a rich and colorful voyage of discovery. It is just such a voyage that the reader of this book is invited to join.

Advocates of multilingualism are always seeking new ways to articulate the advantages inherent in living out life in more than one language. This volume brings together researchers from across Europe to explore sociolinguistic perspectives on multilingualism, with specific emphasis on identity, diversity, and social cohesion, as they focus explicitly on the potential of this phenomenon to empower individuals, groups, and communities.
Positioned around the idea of empowerment, this book explores the potential of multilingualism to overcome divisions and build social cohesion. In particular, chapters discuss how multilingualism can help the individual to become critically conscious and to develop an in-depth understanding of the world, while also benefiting society as whole. Understanding 'public space' in broad terms, including domains such as education, online, and the linguistic landscape, this volume explores how multilingualism can empower people from a range of perspectives, including memorialisation, onomastics, direct action, linguistic rights, migration, and educational play.

A concise introduction to the field of theoretical pragmatics and its applications in second language acquisition and English-language instruction
Pragmatics and its Applications to TESOL and SLA offers an in-depth description of key areas of linguistic pragmatics and a review of how those topics can be applied to pedagogy in the fields of second language acquisition (SLA) and teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL). This book is an excellent resource for students and professionals who have an interest in teaching pragmatics (speech acts, the cooperative principle, deixis, politeness theory, and more) in second language contexts.
This book introduces technical terminology and concepts—including the fundamentals of semantics and semiotics—in simple language, and it provides illuminating examples, making it an excellent choice for readers with an elementary linguistics background who wish to further their knowledge of pragmatics. It also covers more advanced pragmatics topics, including stance, indexicality, and pragmatic appropriateness. Key features include:
A comprehensive introduction to pragmatics, covering meaning, speech acts, the cooperation principle, politeness, metapragmatics, and more
A unique orientation toward practical application in second language acquisition studies and English-language instruction
Two-part chapters clearly separating theoretical introductions from concrete, real-world applications of the theory
Thorough coverage that is accessible to both students and professionals currently teaching English to speakers of other languages, including sample lesson plans
Practical chapters on the interface between pragmatics and teaching, and on research design
Pragmatics and its Applications to TESOL and SLA is a comprehensive and coherent introduction, perfect for students, researchers, and scholars of pragmatics, second language acquisition, language teaching, and intercultural communication. It is also an excellent resource for professionals in the field of English-language education.

Discussing digital technology in teaching and learning settings, Video Enhanced Observation for Language Teaching explains how it can be used to tag, analyze and evaluate talk and use it as the basis for reflection and professional development.
Guiding readers through these processes, this book focusses on the Video Enhanced Observation (VEO) system. Beginning with a discussion of how it was designed and built by language teaching professionals, contributors use VEO to illustrate the advantages and opportunities of digital observation technologies for teachers, explaining its use and how it can be adapted it to their own professional practice. With detailed case studies tracing how teachers in many different settings have used this system for recording, evaluating and reflecting on lessons, this book provides clear research evidence of the development of many education professionals from around the world.
Written by experts in applied linguistics, education and educational technology, Video Enhanced Observation for Language Teaching explains the principles and procedures involved with using digital observation technologies in teaching, enabling other professionals to integrate these technologies into their own environment and practice.

En aquest treball analitzem els usos i les garanties dels drets lingüístics de la ciutadania a les administracions públiques catalanes. Especialment dels drets que l’ordenament recull per al català, llengua pròpia de Catalunya, i també llengua minoritària (i minoritzada) i emparada en un mandat estatutari que en preceptua la normalització de l’ús. És important assenyalar d’entrada aquesta circumstància, sense la qual la comprensió dels usos i dels drets lingüístics queda escapçada.
