This is the IATEFL Global Issues Special Interest Group new publication:
The C Group member Vicky Saumell has published a new book called Beliefs, Principles & Practices: A Collection of ELT Articles.
It is a collection of ELT articles meant as a starting point for discussion and reflection about the author’s favourite ELT topics organised in 3 blocks: Being a teacher, Teaching and Learning, and Integrating Technology. Some ideas appear over and over in different articles, because they reflect the author’s teaching and learning beliefs, principles and practices.

His double life as a secret agent mirrors the duplicities of his relationships. But when he stumbles on a war-changing secret, who can he trust not to betray or abandon him?’
