Submissions are invited for a special issue of the journal focusing on teaching and learning East Asian languages in Higher Education, including but not limited to Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. The aim is to cover a variety of fields related to East Asian language learning and teaching, such as curriculum design, materials development, teaching approaches and assessment, as well as the teaching/learning of writing systems, lexis, phonology, pragmatics, etc. We will also welcome contributions dealing with culture and content learning/teaching in a broader Asian Studies perspective, for instance drama, film, game, and simulation studies. In each case, we would be interested in current research projects and results, examples of innovation and good practice, surveys of current problems and future needs, etc., in the context of higher education.
