Living on a Budget- Free ESL Journal

Hello Readers,

When I first started teaching ESL, I had no training and no idea what I was doing. However, I was interested in learning more about the field. The only problem was, I didn't know where to look. Well, one journal that I'd highly recommend reading...

... is the ELT J (or the ELT Journal). It's published 4 times a year and covers all areas of English Language Teaching: education, linguistics, psychology, sociology, etc.

One of the best things about ELT J is that registration is free! You can find it at: http://eltj.oxfordjournals.org/

Registration will give you limited access (but access nonetheless), so if you look through a few issues and find it useful, you could also considering subscribing.

Some of the articles in the current issue include:
Mark Chapman: "Theory and practice of teaching discourse intonation"

Julia Sudo: "Teaching new tendencies in gender usage in modern English"

Yiching Chen: "Learning to learn: the impact of strategy training"

Caroline Linse: "Predictable books in the children's EFL classroom"

If you have any suggestions or comments about other free ESL resources, feel free to add your comments below.
