About this book

This edited collection examines a range of English Language Teaching (ELT) research in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). While the MENA context has witnessed considerable change in recent years, it has so far been under-represented in ELT research at both the regional and the international level. This book aims to fill that gap by surveying the current state of the field, examining in detail a range of issues and concepts, and suggesting future directions for further research. It will be of interest to ELT researchers and practitioners in general - not just those based in MENA contexts themselves.

Reviews

“Hidri’s volume is an interesting compilation of language teacher research conducted by scholars based in the MENA. This volume is one of the first to showcase the diverse research efforts of the region. It is a necessary addition to any language teacher’s professional library.” (Christine Coombe, TESOL President (2011-2012) and Dubai Men’s College, UAE)

“Congratulations to Sahbi Hidri and contributors for bringing together this comprehensive and much needed volume on English Language Teaching Research in the MENA. The book’s inclusiveness, both in terms of the topics and regional representation, will make it a must read for anyone working on ELT issues in the region.” (Ahmar Mahboob, The University of Sydney, Australia)
