There are more than one billion people learning English as a second language around the world, and the majority of these language learners are in China. This book provides teachers of English to Chinese students with relevant information on the linguistic, cultural and pedagogical backgrounds of these students. The authors analyse the importance (and sometimes unimportance) of this background, and provide information on successful classroom teaching methods and student learning strategies. The authors from the Centre for English Language Communication, at the National University of Singapore have taught over six thousand Chinese undergraduate and graduate students since 1990. This book shares their expertise with fellow practitioners. An important contribution to the ESL literature, Teaching English to Students from China is essential reading for all who teach English to Chinese students whether in the East or the West.
