About the Journal

Focus and Scope

Nordic Journal of Language Teaching and Learning (NJLTL) is an international open access journal which publishes scholarly articles on subjects related to teaching and learning foreign languages, particularly in the Nordic context. The journal promotes research and professional development work across the Nordic countries, although articles within the fields of foreign language learning and teaching from outside this region are also accepted. Articles may be written in Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, English, French, German, Spanish.

NJLTL has two sections. The main section contains double-blind, peer-reviewed articles. Our forum section features shorter articles of general interest such as book reviews, opinion pieces, lectures, professional development reports or contributions from educators and students about hands-on experiences in the classroom. 


The journal was established as The Nordic Journal of Modern Language Methodology in 2012 (ISSN: 1894-2245)  

In 2021 the name was changed to The Nordic Journal of Language Teaching and Learning (ISSN: 2703-8629) to better reflect our interest area and scope.
