    We are a group of people interested in promoting local research in ELT in Chile.

    Why RICELT?

    • Few accessible articles in ELT based in Chile with little impact in teaching practice.
    • Need to promote teacher-research initiatives in the Chilean context.
    • Inconsistency between ELT theory and practice in the Chilean context.
    • Local expertise (academics and teachers) is undervalued.


    RICELT organises Biannual Conferences and MA-focused Events.

    A working definition of research

    RICELT understands research as:

    “The careful study of a situation/facts through the collection of evidence and its analysis.”
