The APPI Journal

Published twice a year – the Spring issue and the Autumn issue – and provided free of charge to members, The APPI Journal was a magazine focused on a diversity of English language teaching (ELT) matters of interest to classroom teachers and English as a foreign language (EFL) professionals at large, with 64 pages, which began to be published in 2001 and stopped in 2017. It consisted of an editorial and feature articles on sundry aspects of language teaching and learning. It also had some regular sections, namely:

– the “APPInep Bulletin” (AB), a 16-page supplement entirely dedicated to the teaching and learning of very young learners (pre-primary and primary – 1st cycle basic education). AB took off in 2000, five years before the Government’s decision to extend the teaching of English to public-sector primary;

– the APPIforma section providing relevant information on the annual continuing professional development (CPD) programme to be carried out by the association’s CPD centre – APPIforma – throughout the country; the also accredited and credited latest courses in the APPIforma menu; and the list of partnerships between APPIforma and various institutions for the provision of teacher training courses on the latter’s request;

– the ‘Your Language Workshop’ section focused on the use of English, namely grammar and vocabulary in multiple formats;

– the ‘On the bookshelf’ section focused on the review of some of the latest books on ELT mostly, according to such criteria as quality of content, style, and inspiration for classroom practice.

Readers and teachers of English at large were invited to contribute with articles on teaching and learning EFL. Research, opinion and reports of personal experiences of interest to the teaching practice were also welcome.

The APPI Journal stopped being published in 2017, after a 3-year gap, due to the growing cost of its production and the lack of sponsorship. The Journal was replaced by the The APPI e-Journal, launched in 2018 with a new and dedicated editorial team.
