How we select our entries

5 July 2020

We use our blog to report on how we look through topical material to publish recommendations of literature and media for use in the EFL classroom. The editorial team uses a style guide to publish on this website, and each entry has to pass at least two of the selection criteria listed below. If you want to find out more about the editorial process, feel free to send us an email.
