    RIBiLT Seminar by Professor Shi Jianguo on 14 September 2017

    Topic: Current issues in studies of Modern Chinese Language
    Speaker: Professor Shi Jianguo (University of Macau)
    Date: 14 September 2017 (Thursday)
    Time: 13:30 - 15:00
    Venue: Room E0311, JC Campus, OUHK
    Medium: Putonghua
    The speaker will first examine current issues in the studies of Modern Chinese Language including language planning, cognition, typology and pragmatic function, with a focus on Chinese syntax and phonology. By comparing papers on teaching Chinese as second language recently published both domestically and overseas, for example, TESOL Quarterly and《外語教學與研究》, the speaker identifies two different schools of thought with dissimilar practices. The domestic researchers tend to utilize quantitative method while studies abroad generally employ qualitative approach.
