About the Journal
The Portuguese Language Journal (PLJ) was founded in 2006 to promote and improve the teaching of Portuguese as a world language. With annual electronic publications, PLJ also aims to provide a venue to encourage collaboration, research, and exchange of ideas among Portuguese language instructors. The journal collaborates with the AOTP (American Organization of Teachers of Portuguese), the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, the Latin American and Iberian Institute at the University of New Mexico, and the Latin American and Caribbean Center at Florida International University. PLJ invites the submission of original, unpublished manuscripts on Language Acquisition, Methodology of Language Teaching, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Film Studies, Literary Criticism, Pedagogy, and reviews of books, multimedia, and other pedagogical material connected to the teaching and learning of Portuguese.
