This volume contains a selection of the papers, seminars and workshops presented in the First International Conference on English Language Teaching and Learning (ICELTL1), held at the University of Santiago, Spain, in September 2008, as well as a number of valuable original contributions by other specialists who were involved in the conference. It aims to represent the views of teachers, scholars, researchers, teacher trainers and curriculum developers from all over the world, from the USA and Japan to Europe. It is addressed to ELT teachers, researchers and professionals who want to reflect upon and develop their knowledge and practice of current issues in English language teaching and learning. Current problems in many of the areas of ELT are given different solutions depending on the context in which respective contributors conduct their work. It is precisely this international perspective that makes this volume unique and illustrative of different realities with a similar objective in mind: the implementation and improvement of English language teaching.

The various contributions have been organised in four main sections that correspond to the major focal topics of the conference: teacher training and development, classroom management and practice, new technologies and language teaching, and research on learner language.

Mario Cal Varela is Lecturer in the Department of English at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, where he teaches English and varieties of English.

More recently, his research interests have shifted into the area of English for academic purposes. Francisco Javier Fernandez Polo is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Santiago, Spain, where he teaches English and translation. He has published on the areas of translation, language teaching and the new technologies, contrastive rhetoric, textual design and accessibility, and, more recently, English for research purposes.
