Dear HLT Readers,

Welcome to the October issue of HLT. First some Pilgrims news in A Letter from Chaz Pugliese, Director of Education and Teacher Training at Pilgrims.

There is also some news from Pilgrims friends. From Carol Griffiths there is a Call for Papers  for a special issue in honour of Jack C. Richard.

And there are invitations to two conferences; the invitations are spin offs of conversations and encounters at IATEFL Belfast this May.

The first conference is close to our HLT heart as it has many humanistic themes. In fact papers from the conference will be published in HLT in June 2023.


The second one is the BESIG – IATEFL Business English Special Interest Group Conference  held in my town so if you attend don’t hesitate to contact me. We are planning a business English issue of HLT for August 2023.     

As for this issue there are two texts for those interested in primary education: Interactive Storytelling in ELT – Why and How? by Mercedes Pérez Berbain,  and Mediation and Young Learners Tanja Marzidovšek.

There is also a real feast for all teachers in early and primary education who love animals especially those that are not wanted any more. These are lesson plans from the competition on animal companions and animals in children’s lives: Tales of Strays: A Compilation of Lesson Plans. You will find some background to the project in Teaching for a Better Tomorrow with Tales of Strays by Margarita Kosior. Who knows you may want to join the competition  in 2023.

For those interested in teaching at tertiary level there are the following two texts: English Language Education Program (ELEP): Students’ Perspectives on Online Poster Presentation in Academic Speaking Course by Vita Adista Pratiwi  and Listyani, and  Academic Writing by Mahmoud Sultan Nafa, and

Teacher trainers will surely enjoy: Applying TESOL Methodology Not Only to Business English Classes Within the Learner-centred Approach by Katarína Zamborová, English For All by Ozgu Ozturk, and Evaluating University Staff Teaching Capabilities Utilizing Associative Rule Analysis by Rasha Osman Abdel Haliem Osman.

Other two areas this issue is looking at is language (Nurses’ Standard English Communication Difficulties: Native Undergraduate and Non-Native by Robin Usher, and World Englishes and Memories by Victor Carreão) and language education in general (Beliefs and Language Learning by Bahar Kızıltunalı, and Positive Language Education: Teaching Beyond Language by Sonja Babic, Katharina Platzer, Johanna Gruber and Sarah Mercer).

As usual there are articles about teaching online: Top 5 Tips For Teaching English Online by Simon Dunton, EFL Teachers Experience in Conducting Effective Learning Activity During COVID-19 Outbreak by Anda Roofi’ Kusumaningrum, Andhika Wahyu Rustamaji, Eric Dheva Tachta Armada, and Rahmadilla Kurniasari, and Teacher and Student Images for Forced Online Education by Heather M.
