CFP: “Elementary-level Foreign Language Instruction: From Theory to Practice”

Deadline to Submit:  August 1, 2019

“Elementary-level Foreign Language Instruction: From Theory to Practice”

Editor: Ekaterina (Katya) Nemtchinova, Seattle Pacific University, katya@spu.edu

Successful elementary level language courses are crucial for a foreign language program as they can lay a foundation for further language and culture study, instill the love for language, and populate upper-level courses with students. One way to ensure that the pursuit of the language continues beyond the first year is to sustain learner’s interest, confidence, and motivation from the start by supporting language instruction with engaging activities and contextualized practice. This edited volume aims to facilitate teaching language at the beginning level by exploring a wide range of critical research and practical issues of interest to instructors of the first-year language classroom. To this end, you are invited to submit proposals for articles that address research or pedagogical issues with the focus on classroom implications for novice levels of adult language proficiency.
