Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

The Brazilian English Language Teaching Journal - BELT+ is pleased to announce a call for papers for volume 6, number 2, to be published in December 2015.

- Linguistic approaches to PAL
- Translation and teaching in English and Portuguese

Papers for volume 6(2) should be submitted by July 31, 2015.

BELT+ is a peer-reviewed, freely distributed electronic publication with the mission of showcasing the quality research being carried out around the world on the teaching and learning processes involved in English and Portuguese as additional languages, from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. To this end, we will be dedicating one issue per year to studies aimed at English as an Additional Language and the second issue of the year to studies aimed at Portuguese as an Additional Language. Our main goal is to promote a broader debate on issues related to both themes, focusing on different levels and contexts that touch upon the Brazilian reality. Published every semester, the journal welcomes original articles, book reviews, interviews and classroom activities.
BELT+ accepts papers in Portuguese and English.
