Summary

Providing an East-West flow of language teaching knowledge and know-how to balance prevailing Western-centric perspectives, this book is an in-depth investigation of the impact of Western-based language teacher education on the pedagogy and practice of Chinese English language teachers who received their training in Western institutions or those that emphasize Western-based teaching approaches. A significant and growing number of these teachers will influence millions of language learners in China over the next decades.

The Pedagogy and Practice of Western-trained Chinese English Language Teachers:

  • Forefronts Chinese teachers’ voices and experiences in the context of their workplaces and classrooms

  • Connects and balances theory and practice using a sociocultural lens
  • Discusses the Chinese government’s policies on the training of teachers and analyzes them in terms of their impact on both American and Chinese higher education institutions

This is a must read book for anyone interested in learning theory adopted from a Western perspective and applied within an Asian setting.
