Dornyei, Zoltan; Eulogies


The Christian TESOL community was saddened to hear the news of Zoltán Dörnyei’s death on June 10, 2022. He was a friend and mentor to many and will be greatly missed.

Zoltán was a friend and mentor to many in the Christian TESOL community and in this section we hear from three individuals who knew him well in these roles. Eleanor J. Pease describes the influential role his work had in her scholarship. Elfrieda Lepp-Kaethler shares her experience in working with him as her doctoral advisor. Mary Shepard Wong recounts the opportunities that she had to collaborate with Zoltán on several projects. Each of these tributes portrays Zoltán as more than an intellectual giant, but more importantly as a kind, humble and godly man.
