English Education and Teacher Education in South Korea
Jo, Seongja
Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, v34 n4 p371-381 Nov 2008
The spread of the English language is a global phenomenon, but it has a particular resonance in South Korea, where English is second only to Korean as a common language. The paper examines the current educational context in South Korea and the policy and practice issues that arise within this context regarding teacher education in English as a second language.
