Language teaching is a ‘profoundly value-laden activity’ (Johnston, Values in English Language Teaching. Routledge, p 1, 2003). Teachers make decisions based on values, and students and teachers often express particular values during lessons (Menard-Warwick et al. (eds) The Routledge handbook of English Language Teaching. Routledge, 2016). Beyond the classroom, values also permeate, for example, national language policies, curriculum design, language testing, and materials development (Hall, Exploring English Language Teaching: Language in action Routledge, 2017).
