Beyond her work at UCLA, she taught in and administered English language programs in Nigeria (1964–1966), Egypt (Fall, 1980), Canada (Summer, 1983), and Armenia (2003–2007). She has lectured and led workshops all over the U.S. and in many other countries as well. In addition to her co-authorship (with Diane Larsen-Freeman) on the three editions of "The Grammar Book," she is co-editor (with Donna Brinton and Marguerite Ann Snow) of the fourth edition of "Teaching English as a Second or Foreign Language" (2014) and series co-editor (with Maggie Sokolik) of the five-volume, content-based "Grammar Connection" series (2008–2009), all with Cengage Learning, who (as Heinle & Heinle) presented her with their lifetime achievement award in 1997.
