    Les collocations constituent un lexique particulier de la langue française. Ce lexique est très souvent fréquent dans la langue courante ainsi que dans les articles et les écrits scientifiques. Des études déjà réalisées sur ce vocabulaire ont confirmé l’influence d’une certaine maîtrise de ce domaine de la langue sur le développement des compétences langagières. En effet, dans cet article notre objectif est d’attirer l’attention des enseignants du FLE en Iran sur l’importance de la prise en considération des mots collocatifs dans leurs pratiques, ce qui peut influencer d’une manière positive les différentes compétences langagières des apprenants. Mais il faut souligner que ce modeste travail est le début d’une réflexion qui pourra s’étendre à un champ plus vaste. Nous allons présenter dans cet article un bref historique de ce vocabulaire et les caractéristiques de base de ce concept que nous jugeons utiles pour l’amélioration de l’enseignement-apprentissage du FLE en Iran

    Teachers use different tools and techniques to gain an understanding of the context in which the class is held in order to resolve problems through the process of reflection. In reflective practice, teachers observe their students’ reactions and the results of using a particular theory or technique in class and gather all their experiences in order to adapt or modify the theory chosen. In the process of reflection, teachers must relate teaching theory to teaching practice and observe the students’ responses regarding the findings of an appropriate theory or a technique. This paper focuses on the importance of reflective teaching and aims to introduce different perspectives involved in this issue.

    It has been for more than two decades that action research has entered the educational settings of Iran, and teachers are encouraged to incorporate action research into their career both as a means to find concrete solutions to the problems they face in the classroom context with the aim of improving their practice and as a means to contribute to their professional development through providing them with opportunities for planned reflection on their practice. Despite this rather long time of focus on action research in the Iranian school context, there still seems to be some misconceptions and vague points about action research and its distinction from other types of research especially applied and classroom oriented research. This paper aims at reviewing some of the issues in action research and shedding some light on its controversial aspects.

    Due to the fact that understanding the news, despite being desirable, seems to be very challenging, having a tool that can facilitate reaching this objective would be quite appealing. The present paper is intended to introduce a useful, comprehensive and up-to-date website with its different sections and their uses. The strengths and weaknesses are also pinpointed. Mr. Sean Banville who has a master’s degree in TEFL/TESL is the creator of this website and has been involved in teaching and producing digital learning materials for a long time. It must be noted that the website covers a wide range of topics and learners can select the news based on their own interests and teachers can choose the appropriate pieces of news according to cultural and political considerations.

    The importance of textbook evaluation in our educational system has been reinforced through many studies done in this regard. However, none of them has focused on Vision 1, the new tenth grade high school English course book. In addition, the studies done had different orientations in their evaluation, but evaluation based on authors’ mentioned objectives is missing. To fill the gap, the present study attempted to investigate whether Vision1 has fulfilled the authors’ objectives or not. To this end, 1000 high school students and 100 school English teachers filled in two questionnaires. The results of the questionnaire data were triangulated by student interviews. The results showed that the course book received almost a mid-point evaluation both by the teachers and students. The student interviews also supported the results.

    This research aimed to find out whether using content- related support in teaching reading comprehension is effective on reading ability of Iranian EFL learners. To this end, Oxford Placement Test (OPT) was administered and out of 60 students 50 female students who were at the same level of proficiency were selected as the control and the experimental groups. A pre-test was also administrated to check their knowledge at the beginning of the study. Then, the experimental group was taught through content- related support; while the control group members were taught through conventional method. There was a three month treatment between the pre-test and the post-test. After instructions, another reading comprehension test, was administered to assess participants reading comprehension. Independent samples t-tests showed that using content- related support was more effective than the traditional method of teaching reading on the Iranian EFL learners reading comprehension. The findings of this study have implications for EFL curriculum developers, language schools, and EFL learners.
