Communication strategies is a book about the verbal and non-verbal ways and means that learners and users of a second or foreign language can employ when they have to face problems due to gaps in their linguistic, communicative or intercultural competence. Strategies also enable them to deal with uncertainty in personal and intercultural contacts and to increase their autonomy in using languages. Communication strategies is both a handbook for teachers, teacher trainers and educators, providing them with a sound methodological background, and a collection of 30 practice activities, games and tasks for language learners and users.

Posted in Published , special issue. Equally, by engaging in leadership roles, learners take charge of not only aspects of their lives but also their language learning. A closer examination of the literature alongside an investigation of how leadership is conceptualized in self-access learning could shed light on our understanding of langua ge learner autonomy. In this special issue, we hope to explore the two overlapping fields by featuring contributions from different contexts and perspectives.
One such perspective may be where self-access learners are engaged in leadership roles. Another perspective may be how self-access learning makes it possible for individual students or groups of students to achieve shared visions or create social change. A third perspective may be how self-access learners conceptualize leadership. Posted in Call for papers , special issue. The field of self-access language learning, and related fields such as language learning advising and self-directed language learning, is a growing and dynamic field of scholarly research and pedagogical practice.
This research is conducted all over the world, and in many languages. The early groundbreaking work in the wider field of learner autonomy in the s was led by Henri Holec at the Council of Europe working predominantly in French. In Mexico, the field has a very active research community working in Spanish. However, the majority of the research is often published in English. At SiSAL Journal, we would like to recognise and highlight the hugely valuable contributions being made by colleagues in all contexts and provide a platform for those researchers working languages other than English to connect to others in their field in their own language.
SiSAL often features articles about research in non-English speaking contexts, and has always welcomed submissions in languages other than English, but there is no mistaking that English is often assumed as the dominant language of educational and other academic research, and few such submissions have been received. If you are working in self-access in a language other than English and would be interested in editing a column of several papers in that language to appear in an upcoming issue of SiSAL Journal, please get in touch.
The column Each column instalment will feature three papers about self-access language learning in the featured language of that instalment.
The papers can be any format from the SiSAL guidelines , but at least one should be a substantial research paper, perspective or literature review. The regular SiSAL Journal editorial team will offer advice and support throughout the process, but the instalment editor will be in charge of making editorial and content decisions.
