Overview

This book in the ELT in Context series, coauthored by a Chinese teacher of English in China and an American teacher of English who worked in China, is a powerful example of international collaboration and highlights one of the distinctive features of this series. In this new volume, Joel Heng Hartse describes working as a foreign teacher of English at Zhejiang University and Jiang Dong describes his work as a local teacher of English at Yuanpei College. This combination brings together two equally important and complementary areas of expertise, in which one teacher-author can be considered to be an expert in the ELT system of that country he was educated in and is the product of that system, while the other teacher-author can be considered to be an expert in the use of the target language, in this case, English.
