Series Title: Studies in Second and Foreign Language Education [SSFLE] 3
Description:

This book, comprising two parts, is concerned with both the science and the
art of foreign language teaching, with a particular, but not exclusive, focus on
Asia.

Under the theme of "Theoretical foundation and research", Part 1 of this book
informs the readers about recent efforts in theoretical and empirical research
which have had an impact on foreign language teaching or promise to yield
results that will shape its future. These studies, not just from the domain of
foreign language teaching but also its primary feeder disciplines of linguistics
and second language acquisition, offer the necessary theoretical and
conceptual foundation for both current and future research and practice.

As its theme "Classroom practice and evaluation studies" suggests, Part 2
focuses on new and innovative developments in curricular and classroom
practice, all built upon insights from research in the above-mentioned
disciplines and poised to become standard practices. These projects include
qualitative and quantitative evaluation studies which have yielded insightful
data for the refinement and continued development of the projects and their
underlying theoretical concepts.
