MASH looking for teachers/researchers to write papers for a book on fluency in EFL

garland_logo.png

MASH Collaboration are working with Paul Nation to produce an edited volume of papers on fluency in EFL and are looking for teachers/researchers who are interested in submitting papers.

The call for submission states: 'The objective of this volume is to gather the voices of teachers/researchers in EFL to help explore fluency in their contexts and how that informs ELT theory, practice, and methodology. In EFL, fluency as a classroom goal has been largely neglected, for a variety of contextual and motivational reasons, including: 1) a focus on test preparation, and 2) a perceived lack of authentic opportunities to use English. Due to a number of relatively recent developments, fluency has been increasingly recognized as an important classroom objective and essential component of learner competency.'
