This publication offers a different approach to the uses of learning technologies in the language classroom. As a regular classroom teacher you will be able to find lesson ideas to adapt to your own contexts; as a teacher trainer, there is a useful overview of the current state of the art in each of the contexts and a range of practical examples.

If you are interested in  how to effectively evaluate or assess English language learning, this collection of papers – the proceedings from the British Council East Asia Regional Symposium on Assessment and Evaluation – is essential reading. 

This Access English Symposium saw the launch of British Council’s English Bilingual Education (EBE) project in East Asia. The aim of the symposium was to bring together key ministry officials and academics to discuss and debate the benefits and possible risks of  EBE – type programmes in the region and elsewhere.

The British Council works closely with universities and other research institutions to fund and publish ELT research.

This volume also includes reports of research not conducted within the Partnership scheme.

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

This collection of papers is the product of a major, high level conference on language-in-education policy which was convened  by the British Council and took place in Juba, South Sudan, in 2012. Some of the most prominent academics and organisations from across Africa and beyond contributed to the event, and to this publication.

This publication will interest and stimulate anyone who is involved in planning and providing education and training for teachers of English before they take up their positions in educational institutions. It brings together, in fourteen papers, a wealth of innovative, practical experiences and ideas from differing contexts across the world. We hope that it will provide a catalyst for new discussions and approaches in pre-service education, for the benefit of future teachers and their learners.
