Title Reconceptualising English language learning pedagogies for a South Korean context
Author(s) Hadzantonis, D
Year 2011
Abstract South Korea’s high expenditure on English education, as well as its low performance on English language competency testing, creates a serious problem for a country working to emerge from global isolation. Attitudes developed through historical and social enculturation shape the language learning styles of South Koreans, and hence heavily influence Korean learner practices in terms of gaining expertise in the English language. This Project develops tertiary students’ language learning through moving the learners from traditional to more learner-centred pedagogies in the form of online learning materials. This curriculum approach works directly with the enculturation dimensions of Korean language learning, interrogating links between language and identity.
