This is the inaugural edition of English in China Today at the Harbin Institute of Technology, one of China’s Ivy League Universities. China currently has more than 2,400 public, private and joint venture colleges and universities and almost every one publishes a journal in Chinese.

The instant journal, now a book series, is a first of its kind, limited to scholars from one Chinese Ivy League University and provides a platform for Chinese scholars to share their ideas with the global community, in the common lingua franca, English. This is the first Chinese university journal published abroad, about English, in English. English in China Today at the Harbin Institute of Technology provides accessible cutting-edge reports on most aspects of the language, including style, usage, dictionaries, literary language, Plain English, the Internet, English language teaching in China both as EFL and ESL, CALL, literature, culture, cross-culture communications, and translation. Its intended readership includes linguists, journalists, broadcasters, writers, publishers, teachers, advanced students of the language, university administrators and others with a professional or personal interest in communication.

The articles presented in this book bring together educators’ work and experiences from around the world (Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, and Australia) in the context of teaching English as a Foreign Language (EFL). This publication, therefore, offers a richness and diversity of contexts and experiences to its readers. What sets this book apart is its balance between and explicit coverage of both research and the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching. This project has been prompted by the increasing split between the fields of linguistics, literatures and English language teaching, and will uniquely address this gap. Additionally, the volume gives practical applications on how to use theories of linguistics and literary texts in the classroom. This book provides undergraduate and graduate students, teacher-learners, practicing teachers, and teacher educators some theoretical and contextual knowledge of English language teaching practices and settings. Articles in this book can be used as supplementary texts for courses in the areas of English Language Teaching, pre-service and in-service teacher education, applied linguistics, literature, and language and culture studies.
