Editorial – Special Issue on Skills Development and Practice

The March 2011 issue of SiSAL Journal was a special issue on skills development and practice in the field of self-access learning and this editorial summarizes the contributions. Some contributions were related to language skill areas and other contributors interpreted the theme in a broader sense which led to a very interesting and varied issue. For example, self-directed learning is an important skill area, particularly in the context of self-access learning. This issue touches on both linguistic and non-linguistic development for outside class learning.
