This research network (HoLLT.net) exists to stimulate and promote research into the history of language learning and teaching within applied linguistics internationally. Such research will help us understand historical developments and furnish necessary historical perspectives for professional reflection on how language education is or should be carried out today, including – for example – in the areas of appropriate development of language education policies, curricular and textbook reform initiatives, and enhancement of teacher training and teaching methodology in different contexts.

The network is free to join and open to all with an interest in researching the history of language learning, teaching, assessment or policy in any context or language tradition.
