Abstract

Current figures suggest that there are between 200 and 400 million users of English in China (Hansen Edwards, 2007). It has been estimated that there are in fact more learners of English in China than there are native English speakers in the entire United States (Taylor, 2002). This book would seem, then, to be a timely addition for the English language teacher who wishes to understand this huge market.
