Malaysian English Language Teaching Association Requests

The Malaysian English Language Teaching Association is putting together articles for a book on the teaching of grammar and would welcome submissions.

We will consider theoretical and practical ideas for teaching the grammar of English where the purpose of teaching grammar forms and structures are related to the meaning and use of specific communication tasks that students need to complete.

Research-based chapters without any teaching apparatus but with implications for teaching will also be accepted.

Please send in an abstract, by February 21, 2008, with the information as stated below.

We will reply as soon as possible and will expect the full paper by April 30, 2008.
