CIDE Seminar: The Impact of English Language Education in China
Jing Fu, PhD, CTL, OISE
Being ranked as the top of both literacy test and math test of 15 years- old students in The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2012 over sixty-five countries and economies, Shanghai has been catching much attention from the world since then. Shanghai's literacy performance in PISA reflects partial of Chinese language education and cultural roots. Given the evidence of great achievement on literacy education in China, particularly foreign language education, this presentation will cover two folders: 1) a historical review of foreign language education and policies since early twentieth century; 2) current trends and language policy on foreign language education in China. Drawing upon "symbolic power" on empirical evidence, the presentation explores how the foreign language education (e.g. English as Foreign Language education - EFL) has become essential in Chinese school education, and what connections among EFL, social class, and cultural root there are. Finding suggests socio-economic status and culture play major roles; and they have great impact on language policies and language education.
