Title: Urban Schools and English Language Education in Late Modern China
Subtitle: A Critical Sociolinguistic Ethnography
Written By: Miguel Pérez-Milans
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415502221/
Series Title: Routledge Critical Studies in Multilingualism
Description:

This book explores the meaning of modernization in contemporary Chinese education. It examines the implications of the implementation of reforms in English language education for experimental-urban schools in the People’s Republic of China. Pérez-Milans sheds light on how national, linguistic, and cultural ideologies linked to modernization are being institutionally (re)produced, legitimated, and inter-personally negotiated through everyday practice in the current context of Chinese educational reforms.
