Latest review

First review round: 6.0 weeks. Overall rating: 1 (bad). Outcome: Rejected.

First of all, there was a delay of several weeks without even an acknowledgement that the paper had been received. Then when I enquired I got the reviews suspiciously soon - almost by return. But the biggest problem was the lack of expertise/knowledge of the world of TESOL on the part of the reviewers, and their close-mindedness about having their views challenged.
