Towards a More Appropriate University English Curriculum in China in the Context of English as an International Language
Xiaoqiong, Betsy Hu; Jing, Xi
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v20 n4 p388-394 2013
The rapid and wide spread of English has given rise to its lingua franca status, which in turn, changes the nature of English and English teaching at the tertiary level. This paper, based on a survey, discusses some of the problems with the current English curriculum used in Chinese universities and proceeds to offer some suggestions for a more appropriate university English curriculum in China in the context of English as an international language.
