Inside the English Subject Centre magazine you will find articles, reviews, news and reports which collectively aim to provide a discursive, reflective forum for teaching and learning issues. We also keep you up to date on developments and innovations in teaching English by evaluating existing and new teaching materials, textbooks and IT packages. The magazine is published twice a year and is distributed free to all UK English departments with the intention that one copy is given to each member of staff. We reach an audience of at least 3000 readers in the UK while anyone in the world with a highspeed connection can download past issues from our website. Although HE Lecturers are our primary audience, please feel free to share the magazine with other staff and with your students, especially your postgraduates.
