Special Issue: Asian Perspectives on Language Learning in the 21st Century


Special Issue Information:


The field of language education is changing at an ever-increasing rate. Traditional notions of education are giving way to newer, more innovative ways of thinking about how we learn, teach and acquire knowledge. The basic question addressed by this special issue is ‘How do Asian learners learn language in the 21st century?’  


This Special Issue welcomes original research in language learning. Empirical studies and systematic reviews are preferred, but special consideration could also be given to papers addressing the theoretical underpinnings of this fast evolving field. Whether it is children learning a first and/or a second language in school, adults learning a new language in formal or informal settings, the focus is on how they learn the language or how the language is taught to them.


Full papers should be submitted by 30th of November 2021. Selected papers will be sent out for peer review and the Special Issue will be published in April 2022.
