It is amazing the journeys ETAS J has taken to a variety of geographic locations in just two years, each time returning to entrance us with the gifts of its travels: articles covering a wide range of the most recent issues worthy of notice in the field of English language teaching and learning. The diversity of cultures, learning environments, and expertise that informs them impact us in different ways while their cross-cultural and intercultural teaching perspectives offer complementary and contrasting viewpoints to our own experience, understanding, and practice of ELT. And, without doubt, they drive the growth of ETAS Journal, ensuring its contents are not only integrative and challenging but always vibrant, engaging, and accessible.
Our Main Articles section brings you four research-based practices and perspectives in ELT that span a wide range of topics, locations, and approaches. In addition to offering new ways of engaging with ELT, perhaps the unifying thread that connects the four articles presented in this section is the way each of them demonstrates the possibilities that research and theorizing may be used to inform, shape, and ground teaching practices and perspectives. In our next section, Voices of Experience, the place where sound theory informs practice, we are pleased to feature authors who make the connections between their theory-based practices and their practice-oriented theorizing.
