This article reports on a study that sought to identify a set of core practices for teaching English more effectively in a Chilean EFL context. The findings of the study were generated using a Delphi-based panel of Chilean English language educators who were identified as experts, including classroom teachers, university-based teacher educators and educational researchers. The results generated a framework of potential core teaching practices that could afford more effective teaching practices, most notably translanguaging and the more effective integration of L1. Results may inform other contexts as to how to develop more collaborative instances to define core-teaching practices as a participatory process.
