Abstract [en]

Sundqvist and Sylvén’s book focuses on extramural English (EE), a term coined by the first author to denote L2 learner-initiated involvement with English outside the classroom walls. The book provides an overview of theory and research related to EE and discusses the implications it has for L2 English teaching and learning. The impetus for writing this volume was the lack of a comprehensive handbook for ELT practitioners, student teachers, teacher educators, and researchers that addresses the new challenges of teaching L2 English in the 21st century to primary and secondary school learners, many of whom engage in English-mediated activities in their spare time. The authors are based in Sweden, the educational context for the specific EE-labelled research reviewed in some sections of the book. It may in some respects be more relevant to that context, as extreme EE consumers have been identified among adolescent Swedes, a case in point being Olsson (2016), whose participants in one category spent an average of seven hours per day on EE. However, the book explicitly involves target readers around the world.
