Welcome to this edition of Journal of English and Education (JEE), December 2010. The production of this edition marks the fourth year of JEE's publication. It has not been long since we were around, and there is certainly plenty to learn and a lot more to do to constantly make necessary improvements upon this journal.

On behalf of the study program, the board of editors hope that the publication of JEE can become a valuable medium for English language lecturers, teachers, and professionals to share their prolific and insightful works.

For this eight edition of JEE, we are proud to present 8 papers comprising a wide range of issues related to English language teaching, the study of Linguistics, literature and culture. Therefore, we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude and appreciation to all of the contributors.

Last but not least, we hope that all of the papers included in this edition will especially help our readers broaden their view in their research endeavors and in their English language teaching. Suggestions, critics and constructive comments will be most welcomed.
