English Teaching Forum

ETF is a quarterly journal for professionals teaching English as a Foreign or Second Language, published by the United States Department of State in Washington, D.C., in January, April, July and October. Its target readership in Portugal is made up mostly of basic and secondary EFL teachers.

ETF articles focus a diversity of pedagogical categories of interest to any classroom teacher: assessment; authentic materials; CALL; classroom management; content-based instruction; cross-cultural communication; curriculum design; ESP; learning styles; lesson planning; materials development; motivation; multi-level classrooms; professional development; project-based learning; reflective teaching; special educational needs; teacher observation; technology-supported learning, and the list of such categories could well go on and on.

But ETF also contemplates basic skills such as vocabulary and spelling to more advanced ones like language awareness and critical thinking; and the four skills; grammar; integrated skills; life skills; pragmatics; pronunciation; technology; text analysis; web literacy, to name but a few of the key topics regularly revisited in this prestigious journal.

Aspects of American culture and literature, current issues as ethnic minorities, the environment and the evolution of societies, among others, are also present and always dealt with in a perspective of use in the classroom.

Most of the authors published in ETF are classroom teachers who write side by side with educational experts.

Please note: The English Teaching FORUM website http://exchanges.state.gov/englishteaching/forum-journal.html contains articles from issues of ETF dating back to 1993.
