English Language Education Across Greater China /by Anwei Feng. This volume offers a comprehensive examination of the spread of English and English education across Greater China through sociolinguistic studies of Mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau, and in-depth analysis of English language use and education in economically booming areas of Mainland China such as Shanghai and Guangdong and underdeveloped regions like Xinjiang.
This impressive collection brings together 21 international scholars who provide a fascinating in-depth look at English language teaching and use across the linguistically and culturally complex area called Greater China. Not only do these authors provide valuable documentation of the history, implementation and impact of language policies and English teaching in different countries and diverse regions of Mainland China, but collectively they also challenge us to rethink many of the theories, models, and concepts which have long dominated the fields of English language teaching, applied linguistics, and bilingual education. As such, this book makes a most significant and valuable contribution. Wayne E. Wright, University of Texas at San Antonio Anwei Feng's excellent addition to the growing body of literature about China's investment in English not only expands our knowledge of its prodigious scale and importance but offers a nuanced and often-brilliant account of the many dilemmas involved: pedagogical and political, cultural and curricular, personal and professional. The author has unique insight into these problems and prospects from his close familiarity with China's vast investment in producing an indigenous competence in English, but the work is also sustained by a careful process of documentation and analysis, and a coherent and accessible style of writing.
