The journal Researching and Teaching Languages for Specific Purposes publishes the results of research carried out in the domain of language teaching and learning in Higher Education, for all languages and cultures. Since its beginnings it has been oriented towards both theoretical and applied research while maintaining a pedagogical dimension through the publication of notes on teaching experiences in each issue.
The journal has four main objectives. The first is to encourage the publication of research carried out in the field of teaching and learning languages in Higher Education. The second objective is to contribute to the training of teachers of languages for special purposes by publishing research results and notes on teaching experiences. From the beginning, the third objective has been to encourage the teaching and learning of all foreign languages. Even though most articles are written in French and English, they deal with the teaching and learning of different languages. The fourth objective is to promote young researchers. The journal is recognized for encouraging new authors and, thanks to its wide circulation, allows young researchers to be introduced to the academic community.
Volume 37, number 2, to be published in June 2018, will adress the key question of “Body, Voice and Language Learning in Higher Education”. We welcome all contributions written in either English or French.
