Co-published by The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF) and Routledge
The Global Research on Teaching and Learning English series, co-published by The International Research Foundation for English Language Education (TIRF) and Routledge, showcases research by scholars from around the world, whose research has been funded by grants from TIRF, awarded through a carefully vetted international competition. Since 2002, TIRF, an independent foundation started by the TESOL International Association (TESOL) in 1998, has commissioned and/or funded research on a range of topics associated with the teaching and learning of English worldwide. This series offers a collection of previously unpublished empirical studies conducted by grant recipients throughout the world, as well as chapters from invited scholars. Volumes in the series report on issues of current concern to the applied linguistics community and the language teaching profession, and present a wide variety of research topics investigated through a range of research procedures. Most chapters appearing in volumes in this series cover issues that motivated the research, context of the research, research question(s) addressed, data collection and data analysis procedures, findings and discussion, and implications for policy, practice, and future research. This chapter structure helps to achieve consistency and coherence across the volumes, while at the same time allowing each author to report on the unique contents of his/her own study. The authors and editors forego any honoraria so that all the royalties from the sales of this series can be used to support TIRF’s programs.
