Title: Language Learning in New English Contexts
Subtitle: Studies of Acquisition and Development
Edited By: Rita Elaine Silver
Christine C.M Goh
Lubna Alsagoff
Description:

This edited volume is dedicated to the exploration of English language
acquisition and development outside of the largely monolingual environments
of North America, the United Kingdom and Australia. Specifically, the
studies investigate different facets of English language learning in
Singapore, and use this experience to forge connections with other New
English contexts.

Using empirical data drawn from a range of language classrooms, the
contributors emphasise the place of education within a global framework of
English language learning. In so doing they examine economic, social and
political factors influencing language education, and present a
refreshingly global perspective on English language acquisition.

This comprehensive examination of language learning in New English contexts
will be of interest to researchers in applied linguistics and world Englishes.
