Book synopsis An increasing number of universities either provide seminars regarding the uses of English in international contexts, or on how effective methodologies can be developed for teaching English and what can be done to train future English language teachers. There are, however, very few edited volumes about English language teaching in countries like Turkey. In this respect, Research Perspectives on Teaching and Learning English in Turkey: Policies and Practices offers a broad picture of English language teaching in the Turkish EFL context. It examines the development of English language teaching and learning in Turkey and illustrates current practices through empirical studies. The sixteen chapters in the book are divided into four thematic sections: Teacher Education in Turkey, English Language Learning in Turkey, Instructional Technologies in English Language Teaching and Learning in Turkey, and English Language Education in the Turkish Socio-Cultural Context.
