This journal is intended for an international audience of elementary and secondary teachers, researchers, teacher educators, scholars, parents and instructors at tertiary levels who are concerned with the teaching and learning of English in varying contexts (such as families, classrooms, schools, colleges, universities, communities, countries etc), whereby two or more languages are prevalently and extensively used by an individual speaker or a community of speakers.

TLEMC welcomes articles that are practical, methodological, and empirical (both qualitative and quantitative studies) in nature, and that discusses different levels of education. TLEMC focuses on the impact of English language education in a multilingual context on an individual or/and the community’s learning, development, knowledge, socialization, engagement, culture, advancement and all other related phenomena. These impacts should be explicitly explored and critically argued by contributors in making their conclusions and implications.
