Open Call for Articles

June 2020 issue

The Journal of Applied Languages and Linguistics 


Have you done some excellent research?

Is it based on solid evidence?

Does the world need to know?

Will it make a difference to the way people teach and learn languages?

Can you communicate it clearly?

The Journal of Applied Languages and Linguistics  (J-ALL) is a brand-new peer-reviewed journal. We’re looking for articles for our June and December issues. 

Submission deadline: May 30th, 2020

Here’s what we’re trying to do:

  • Bridge the gap between academia and front-line language teachers. Teachers are smart, and they care about best practice, but they simply don’t have time to wade through endless research papers. We want to make sure as many teachers as possible read, understand and implement the best research.

  • Inform the big debates in language learning and teaching. Teachers are constantly bombarded with opinions and ideas about best practice. But where’s the evidence behind those opinions? What can research tell us? We want to move the big debates away from “I believe …” and towards “Research shows that ….”

  • Help people teach and learn languages more successfully. We all know that learning a language can be a long and tedious process. But when it works well, the results are amazing. Teaching a language can be even more frustrating. But it’s still the best job in the world. We want to help language learners and teachers to keep that passion alive. We want to make a difference.

Prior to the 2nd Language Education and Research Conference (LER conference; 3-4 October, 2020, Athens, Greece) the Journal of Applied Languages and Linguistics* (J-ALL) invites the submission of papers to appear on the journal’s special issue:

“Applied Linguistics and Task-Based Grammar”.



Aims and Scope:


Task-based language teaching (TBLT), also known as task-based instruction (TBI), focuses on the use of authentic language and on asking students to do meaningful tasks using the target language. In task-based approaches, the focus of classroom activities is on the task, and ultimately on meaning (for more on task-based teaching and learning). TBLT is a communicative approach in which students try to complete the task given by using the language instead of trying to use rules explicitly. TBLT is a bridge between classroom and daily life environment out of the classroom with the assistance of its communicative activities, which requires the interaction between students to perform a task in the classroom.
