The CALL IS e-newsletter, on CALL, is soliciting articles on any of the various aspects of teaching and tutoring pronunciation, oral skills, and listening that apply to, focus on, or assess ESL/EFL pedagogy, second language acquisition, accent addition/reduction, and other related research. We also solicit book reviews for both classroom and methodology texts. Teaching tips, tutoring tips, and classroom strategies are also acceptable submissions.
