This portfolio is comprised of a collection of the author's beliefs and ideas about teaching second and foreign languages. This portfolio contains a teaching philosophy, which illustrates the author's beliefs about teacher and student roles in the communicative classroom. There are four artifacts in this portfolio which provide further details on the author’s beliefs of teacher-talk in the classroom, meaningful classroom communication, teaching pragmatics in closing conversations, and Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development. These artifacts offer ideas for potential research as well as practical application of these topics in second and foreign language teaching.
