Special Issue on
ELT in difficult circumstances: challenges, possibilities and future directions
The phrase ‘difficult circumstances’ dates back to Michael West in the 1960s who refers to teaching contexts paralyzed with large classes, dearth of basic resources, low proficient teachers, teachers with excessive workload, etc. As education has become a right, the number of students enrolled in schools across the globe has increased significantly over the years. The ‘Education for All’ initiative has provided opportunities for lifelong learning and opened the doors of learning to the poorest and the most disadvantaged sections of the society. Considering the huge number of children learning and teachers teaching in such challenging contexts, there is a need to understand the complexities of the issues involved in the teaching and learning of English in such difficult situations. Therefore, this issue of Fortell attempts to explore English Language Teaching in ‘difficult circumstances’.
Papers are invited on the themes/issues mentioned below but not limited to them.
English language teaching in difficult circumstances: Challenges and possible interventions
Using languages of children in the foundational stage/early stage of teaching
