Abstract:

This book is developed from an ethnographic case study which investigated
Chinese adolescents' construction of their gender identity and the way it is
negotiated in the course of learning English as a foreign language (EFL) from
a sociolinguistic, sociocultural and sociopsychological point of view. It
documented the unseen connections between the micro-level of the students'
face-to-face verbal interactions and the macro-level of the role of learning
EFL that can play in students' construction and negotiation of their gender
identity. The book aims to help both teachers and students to develop a more
comprehensive view of English learning as a means to social and educational
development. On the whole, the study showed that second language learning
pedagogy which integrates CLT can be used as an important tool to open up
opportunities for the improvement of gender awareness in cultures where
gender and sex are not linguistically differentiated. It demonstrated that the
EFL class can be used as a means of opening up a space where adolescents
can become aware of gender and play around with this awareness. It can be
educationally valuable with regard to making students and teachers think
about a number of social and intercultural issues alongside cross-linguistic
issues. The fieldwork of the research showed that interventions directed at
attracting students' attention to gender roles and the way they behaved in
interactions in English highlight an educational function of the place of EFL in
the curriculum which is so far unrecognised in China.
