Do as I say, not as I do? The vocabulary teaching beliefs of EFL teachers and their practices
Dr. Mario López Barrios
Beliefs, assumptions and knowledge (BAK) systems influence EFL teachers’ actions. This presentation focuses on some teachers’ vocabulary teaching beliefs and practices based on data collected by a survey and class observations. The results will be presented by building links among the teachers’ BAK systems and the actions observed in class.
