Teaching Languages

Informed by scholarship and research into second language acquisition

The Centre for Excellence in Language Teaching (CELT) promotes scholarship in all aspects of language teaching across all languages including (but not limited to) all modern foreign languages, English for Academic Purposes, General English, Chinese, classics, Arabic, Japanese, linguistics and translation studies. CELT aims to establish Leeds as a leading centre for pedagogic scholarship in language education.

CELT publishes the online journal ‘The Language Scholar’. The aim of this journal is to enable colleagues and students within the school as well as contributors from other institutions to publish their work and thoughts in a wide variety of multimodal genres, from critical reviews to thought pieces and case studies. You can find the journal at http://languagescholar.leeds.ac.uk/
