About the Book
This book examines the importance of English language teaching in China, but also the need for this teaching to be modernised in order for China to better join the world economy. The current trend within English teaching in China is for 'communicative competence' - that is, in being understood even if the English usage is incorrect.This volume argues that more solid grammar teaching must be coupled to this communicative competence, if English language teaching in China is to be successful. The contributors to this volume examine every aspect of language teaching and suggest new ways in which communication and grammar can be balanced. The chapters include coverage of: the importance of English in a global world; theories of language teaching; creating a learning environment; using multimedia; online learning; language testing; and appropriate teacher training. With its balance of theory and practice, and internationally renowned contributors, this guide to new approaches, perspectives and standards in language teaching will be essential reading for academics interested in applied linguistics and second language acquisition, and English language teaching professionals.
