China has the largest education system and the largest number of learners of English. Chinese students form the largest single group of international learners in many countries. However, there are few international studies of how Chinese students learn and adapt to other learning cultures.
This book focuses on three themes related to Chinese learners
the teaching and learning of English in Chinese classrooms
intercultural adaptation of Chinese learners in international educational contexts
the application of a range of research approaches and innovative methodologies
The authors, from Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the UK, present original research with Chinese learners in higher education which provides a rich and wide international context for understanding social, cultural and academic issues related to Chinese students.
The book should be of interest to researchers, teachers and postgraduate students in applied linguistics and English teaching, intercultural adaptation and international education.
