The struggle for English Language Teaching (ELT), and by default language teacher education (LTE), to become recognized as fully-fledged professions is a continuing one (Wallace, 1991, pp. 4-6). However, increased professionalism in LTE has contributed greatly to its quest for independent disciplinary status in recent years. Some of these professional practices have occurred as a result of emerging philosophies, others because of empirical findings, and others still due to technical advances.
