To The Editor
Thank you for the HLT which I always get with great pleasure. It really makes me feel very close to you . I have appreciated the new edition, an example of how something can be renewed respecting tradition.
Another posirtive quality is the more and more growing number and variety of teachers who contribute to the success of HLT. I really hope it can continue to inspire so many teachers all over the world encouraging them to master the art of teaching.
I really congratulate you and the whole staff on keeping it alive for such a long time, (20 years!) with continuous updating of everything connected with teaching.
Lots of wishes for the New Year.
Have you ever (really) thought about why you learn the language(s)? Have you ever (really) thought about why you teach children the language? Have you ever (really) thought about why were languages invented?
I believe the answer is ... to communicate. In my new blog-post, I talk about how I approach young language learning for communication. It's step 4 in the PBA.
If you find it useful, share it. Have a great day,Mija Selič
For many years I have been interested in HLT and very much appreciate your journal’s emphasis on
innovative, creative approaches to language teaching. I am the founder of the Scenario Project
(http://scenario.ucc.ie) at University College Cork. From our recent Scenario Forum Symposium
(Hanover University – 21-22 Sept 2018) arose ‘Recommendations for the Promotion of a Performative
Teaching, Learning and Research Culture in Higher Education’ (click here
Would you as editor of HLT perhaps be interested in making these recommendations available to HLT
Wishing you a great start into the New Year,

I found this popular account interesting in itself and also for the links. Might be worth sharing?
All best as alwaysPhilip Prowse
I'm particularly pleased with my newest article:
A former German minister of foreign affairs has also contributed an article. It's great to know I'm among such distinguished contributors on the KT site.
You're welcome to share my article - please include the source.

In her latest blogpost, Chia Suan Chong looks at the type of books that are most recommended for newly qualified teachers and those embarking on a teacher training course. Of course, these books can be complemented by other supplementary titles that course providers might recommend to enrich the teacher training experience and which are pertinent to the teaching context.
Relationship building across cultures
The way we build relationships with some might mean the relationship goes awry, or even ends up catastrophic in others. How can we help our learners interact in English successfully and build solid relationships with the different people that they meet?

Overcoming a fear of the unknown
Who are we when we speak a foreign language? Is proficiency measured by how successfully we can transfer our personalities from our first language? How might the different cultural conventions change the way we present ourselves when speaking in the foreign language? Chia Suan Chong, our ETp resident blogger, considers these questions in her latest blogpost.
