Editors: Hiroto S. Nakamura
Book Description:
It is generally accepted that one of the reasons behind Japan and Singapore's rise to economic powerhouses was the emphasis on education. Although problems continue to exist with rote learning methods in Asia and excessive pressure at the school level, an educated workforce has facilitated the development of a core knowledge in the populace that has increased global competitiveness. This book presents topical data on education in Asia including differences in beliefs about language learning of monolingual Korean and bilingual Korean-Chinese university students; the Goose Family Phenomenon in Korea and its sociocultural context; the future of educational sciences and teacher education in Turkey and Taiwan's EFL college classes.
