Secondary School English Education in Asia: From policy to practice (Routledge Critical Studies in Asian Education)
 
Secondary School English Education in Asia: From policy to practice (Routledge Critical Studies in Asian Education)
 
Bernard Spolsky, Kiwan Sung
 
  Continuing on from the previously published Primary School English-Language Education in Asia: From Policy to Practice (Moon & Spolsky, 2012), this book compiles the proceedings which took place at the 2011 annual conference of AsiaTEFL which took place in Seoul, Korea. It surveys the current status, practices, challenges, and future directions of Secondary English education in 11 diverse countries - in Israel, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Vietnam and China. Given the importance of secondary English education as the central feature for continuing development of target language and culture in English language teaching in Asia, each contributed chapter includes key policies, theories, and practices related to the development and implementation of country-specific curricular and instructional programs in secondary English educational contexts in these countries. Secondary School English Education in Asia: From Policy to Practice critically analyses both sides of the English language debate from advantages to complications in its chapters including:

  • Educating for the 21st Century: The Singapore Experience
  • Miles to Go ...: Secondary Level English Language Education in India
  • English Language Education Innovation for the Vietnamese Secondary School: The Project 2020
  • Exploring the Value of ELT as a Secondary School Subject in China: A Multi-goal Model for English Curriculum

Secondary School English Education in Asia will appeal to English Language Teaching (ELT) researchers, teacher educators, trainee teachers and teachers, primarily those teaching in Asia.

Primary school English-language education in Asia: From policy to practice
 
Spolsky, B. & Moon, Y. (Eds.) (2012).
Routledge critical studies in Asian education.
 
  The present book is the fifth volume of AsiaTEFL Book series, dealing with English teaching in the primary school, consisting of revised papers delivered at the 2010 AsiaTEFL international conference. The authors are scholars and educational leaders that national associations in Asia nominated to report on a topic of primary school English-language education policies in their respective countries and regions. The coverage is wide: China (rapidly becoming the leader in the number of students learning English), Japan (working to make the transition from primary to secondary school smooth and seamless), Singapore (which has for many years followed a policy of using English as a medium of instruction), Korea (giving a growing role to English while preserving its mother tongue), India (building on a tradition of colonial English teaching to establish English as an economic resource), Vietnam (fitting English into a major program of national rebuilding), and Taiwan (successfully implementing English educational policies from Taipei City to other parts of the nation).

Language Assessment in Asia:
Local, Regional or Global?
 
  Language assessment has become one of the most important issues in modern education. Language Assessment in Asia: Local, Regional or Global? is the fourth volume in the series by Asia TEFL aimed to promote an understanding of English assessment in the Asian context. This volume provides a wealth of important information on the development and practice of English assessment in six countries: China, Japan, Korea, Israel, Indonesia, and Bangladesh. The comprehensive reviews in each chapter show that these Asian countries tend to have centralized high-stakes testing, which demonstrates the dangers and limitations of this approach. The authors claim that tests need to be used with care and that we should avoid excessive reliance on imperfect assessment instruments. This volume will help non-Asian as well as Asian ELT professionals understand and learn more about language assessment and its current trends in Asia.
