This issue aims to explore useful cutting-edge knowledge of second language acquisition and pedagogy among East Asian languages and students. It will examine the process of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (as a second) language acquisition among American students as well as ESL (English as a second language) acquisition among students with East Asian backgrounds. Both quantitative and qualitative studies are welcome.
More specific topics encompass, but are not limited to, (1) interlanguage or learner language analysis (such as conversation analysis), (2) input and interaction, including teacher talk (i.e., the language of instruction that second language teachers use in the classroom), (3) learner variables (such as motivation, personality characteristics, age, and learning styles), (4) pragmatic competence, (5) cultural understanding (or sociolinguistic competence), (6) grammatical acquisition and form-focused instruction, (7) vocabulary acquisition, (8) phonetic/phonological acquisition and teaching pronunciation, (9) task or content-based instruction, (10) language for specific purposes (LSP) (including science and technology), (11) study abroad, and (12) teaching listening, speaking, reading, and/or writing skills.
The purpose of this edition is to bring together new findings about second language acquisition and pedagogy among East Asian languages and students and, hence, contribute to the enhanced efficacy of their learning and teaching processes.
