This collection offers insight into current issues in teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in Asia. University and secondary school teachers and researchers from nine different countries share experiences they have encountered in their English-language courses, offering suggestions for incorporating new methodologies and techniques both in and outside the classroom. Not only is this book filled with valuable teaching techniques that the contributors have found successful, but it also introduces new ways of dealing with various social situations in the classroom. This book is unique in that it offers the perspective of teaching English in Asia, where students often don’t get many opportunities to engage with the language in informal settings.

This book is geared towards university-level instructors and secondary school teachers teaching EFL in Asia, as well as researchers conducting cross-cultural studies which investigate foreign language learning and acquisition in today’s global society. English language teaching has become a booming industry in this region, and with the professionalization of the field comes abundant opportunities for research and informed practices.

This book stands alone in its purpose in generating a current view of the situations which EFL teachers and students in Asia today face. Topics discussed in this volume include action research projects, successful teaching practices, innovative language assistance programs, and issues of autonomy and identity.
