Learning out of class


What learners do outside the classroom when it comes to learning a language is an area that has just begun to receive attention in the last few years. Two of the leading international figures in TESOL, David Nunan & Jack C. Richards, have just published an edited collection of work in this emerging field and it’s great to see that four staff members from LALS have chapters in the book. We like to think we’re abreast with developments in the fields we teach and research in!

The LALS contributors to the book, just so you know, are:

Averil Coxhead and Julie Bytheway Learning vocabulary using two massive online resources: You will not blink

Phoebe M. S. Lin and Anna Siyanova-Chanturia Internet television for L2 learning

Stuart Webb Extensive viewing: Language learning through watching television

John Macalister Study Abroad Programme Design and Goal Fulfillment: “I’d like to talk like a Kiwi”Nunan & Richards

John Macalister

John Macalister’s research interests include second language reading and writing, issues in language learning and New Zealand English. He teaches courses in language teaching methodology (reading and writing), and curriculum design.
