Experiences of Second Language Teacher Education brings together the voices of teacher educators working in different national and educational settings to illuminate our understanding of the processes and contexts in which second language teachers are trained and continue developing. Based on their personal experiences in the field, the authors address the themes of change in teacher education, the influence of local context on practice, the issue of interculturality and the actual process of engaging with teachers and teacher educators.
