English in Aotearoa

What is English in Aotearoa?
English in Aotearoa has been the professional journal of the New Zealand Association for the Teaching of English since 1982. Over the years, it has developed in size, scope and sophistication. The more than 800 copies of each issue go to personal members, to NZ Secondary schools and to some Universities and Polytechnics in NZ and overseas.

The editor of English in Aotearoa is Steve Langley. He is supported by a national editorial committee of English teachers, whose role it is to support him by seeking copy that will stimulate and assist English teaching in Secondary schools.

English in Aotearoa is published thrice yearly, in April, July and October.
