Self-Directed English Language Learning through Watching English Television Drama in China
Wang, Danping
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v19 n3 p339-348 2012
This paper presents a case study of a group of Chinese ESL learners in China, who study English by immersing themselves regularly and rigorously in English television drama. A self-directed learning pedagogy has been developed and discussed, which seems to have signposted an effective and economic way for ESL learners to improve linguistic, sociolinguistic and pragmatic competence beyond the language classroom.
