Abstract

Teaching Chinese: Challenges in a Globalized World.. (Fudan University Press, 2014. Chinese language has been predicted to become one of the two most important world languages alongside English. While some argue that the difficulty of Chinese linguistic features will make this vision impossible, others insist that China's growing economic might will make it equal to English in terms of world influence. This volume focuses on the globalization of Chinese language, the teaching and learning of Chinese language in a global village and the challenges teachers and students will face.
