The study’s aim is to shed light on the nature of future English language teachers’ reflective communication in the context of video clubs. The objectives of the video clubs were to further develop students’ pedagogical content knowledge in relation to English language teaching and learning, professional vision, and reflective competence. Concerning the professional and political aspects of communication, this study aims to investigate the influence of different types of video interventions implemented in four different video clubs on the nature of pre-service teachers’ communication and, consequently, its effects on students’ reflections and their professional learning.
