ELTA Journal Volume 2 No. 2

Dear colleagues,

ELTA is proud to present the second issue of ELTA Journal.

In this first issue, last December, we presented the ideas that have shaped the creation of ELTA Journal and, this year, we would like to introduce new ideas that have guided us in developing this issue. Our aim was to connect research and practice and to present some theoretical considerations in the field of ELT. Our journal is blind peer-reviewed, allowing our authors to have their articles rechecked, reevaluated and inspected by unbiased experts.

Carefully selected articles that we have prepared for you in this issue are written by teachers, associate professors and researchers in the ELT field. For some authors this is another way of reflecting on their practice and, for others, this is a form of teacher development.

We hope you enjoy reading this issue and we look forward to receiving your feedback and article contributions for our next issue.

Yours faithfully,

ELTA Journal Editorial Team
