A refereed publication, The Modern Language Journal is dedicated to promoting scholarly exchange among teachers and researchers of all modern foreign languages and English as a second language. MLJ publishes documented essays, quantitative and qualitative research studies, response articles, and editorials that challenge paradigms of language learning and teaching.
The Modern Language Journal offers 6 or 7 essays or research studies per issue, a professional calendar of events and news, a listing of relevant articles in other journals, an annual survey of doctoral degrees in all areas concerning foreign and second languages, and reviews of scholarly books, textbooks, videotapes, and software.
MLJ also offers Perspectives, a section that appears in issues 2 and 4, which presents timely professional issues for discussion through an introductory article followed by several commentaries.
