TESOL in Context is the publication of the Australian Council for TESOL Associations (ACTA) for teachers, researchers and others interested in TESOL in Australia and internationally. Normally, two issues are produced each year.

As from the middle of 2017, the journal is moving online and hard copies will no longer be produced. It will be open access as part of a move to increase readership and to expand coverage. The journal will continue to be peer reviewed and attract high quality articles from experts in the TESOL field.

Intercultural understanding as a critical education issue

This issue of TESOL in Context presents a collection of articles that debate and explore intercultural understanding as a critical education issue for Australia.

The issue opens with an article by Indika Liyanage, Tony Walker and Michiko Weinmann titled: 'English as an additional language teachers, policy enactments and intercultural understanding'. They argue that large-scale curriculum changes require critical self-reflexivity on the part of teachers and school leaders.

Also included are articles by Michael Singh: 'Intercultural language and literacy education: Professional standards for post-monolingual school-embedded teacher-researcher education' and Carol Reid, Criss Jones Díaz and Hussain Alsaiari: 'Cosmopolitanism, contemporary communication theory and cultural literacy in the EAL/D classroom'.

Book reviews in this issue include: Second language research: Methodology and design, and Classrooms of possibility: Supporting at-risk EAL students.
