JoLLE's new "Take 2" feature!


Erin Kearney’s 2008 article, "Culture Learning in a Changed World: Student Perspectives," provides a fascinating discussion on the role of culture in foreign language education. Even now in 2016, the inclusion of culture in the foreign language classroom is sparse and often stereotypical or taught through little blurbs spaced throughout the language textbook. Cultural knowledge intrinsically motivates students to want to learn more, to understand more, and become more involved with the language and all its facets. Learning a foreign language cannot be a robotic process of grammar and drills; students must be brought into the language in a way that interests them to pursue further education and understanding. Strong and authentic cultural inclusion and contextual instruction is the key.

As we head into the summer, consider serving as a manuscript reviewer for JoLLE.  Summer is actually one of our busiest times of the year!  The experience is an important form of professional service and a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at academic publishing.  JoLLE accepts a variety of manuscripts, from empirical research reports to field-based practitioner articles.
