From the Editor-in-Chief

    Bernard Spolsky


This third issue of volume 2 brings another set of high quality papers making clear the standards achieved by members of Asia TEFL in their research. Opening with a widening of scope and a consideration of sociolinguistic ecology in one Asian nation, in the first paper, Charlene Tan looks at policy concerning Mandarin in Singapore, a pragmatic response to changes in economic perceptions. At the beginning of the millennium, China set out to streamline its English curriculum. In the second paper, Jun Yang and Xiaoxiang Li report on a delayed feasibility study that is a beginning of needed research into its effectiveness.

Hawanum bt. Hussein and Arshad Abd. Samad report on a study (in Malaysia) of various approaches to helping students who are having problems learning English. Lixin Xiao reports on a study set to answer the critical question, how well do English teachers predict what their students want? In a study conducted in a Korean school, Eun-Young Park looked at the effectiveness of various treatments of errors and the value of computer-mediated approaches. Rao Zhenhui studied the learning strategies of Chinese university students, and found differences related to gender and academic major, suggesting the existence of social and educational factors as a background.

Finally, Jim McKinley discusses issues faced by a Western researcher conducting a study in a Japanese university English writing classroom.

The range is impressive-papers dealing with five different countries, with various research approaches to problems in language policy, curriculum reform, slow learners, activity preferences, error correction, learning strategies and research settings. The Editor and his team of associates have once again made a fine job of winnowing out the best, and making sure that each paper is in the best possible form.
