Overview

This book investigates, from a sociocultural, linguistic, and pedagogical perspective, the conceptual and pragmatic frameworks that characterize secondary language learning in a Northeast Asian context.
Hadzantonis contextualizes these salient domains through an engagement with social and cultural themes such as the familial, political, as well as cultural commodities and socioeducational structures. In this way, the text employs tools such as transnational theory and performativity and develops a model that contributes to the resolution of one of the greatest economic issues of the time, that of ineffective secondary language learning.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This new transition model of language pedagogy impresses upon the reader the necessity of new perspectives in language education, as it accounts for culturally specific learning styles and learner social, political and cultural identities that previous work has not. It presents EFL/expanding circle learners as having agency through uniquely cultured learning styles, styles that educational stakeholders must accommodate when promulgating language pedagogies." - Katherine Chen, University of Hong Kong
