The following volume presents a collection of chapters pertaining to English studies. The transversal theme for all of them is the pedagogical issue of informed teaching. In this volume the reader will find results of research and reflection of academic researchers and practitioners which may implicitly or explicity inspire language teachers to improve school practices by presenting insights into language teaching related areas. The book is divided into four main areas. Part one focuses on communication related issues and discusses the development of work-related competences. Part two of the volume is devoted to intercultural issues in foreign language pedagogy. Part three contains ruminations on creativity and reflectivity at school. Part four of the volume encompasses ideas lying at the crossroads of linguistics and literature.
