Abstract:

The book aims to address one of the main problems of Chinese language
teaching: lack of research base. The rapidly growing interest in Chinese
language teaching has not resulted in the development of a strong research
background. This book attempts to change the current situation.

The volume consists of three chapters. Chapter I: Research Base for Practice
contains three papers, each of which uses research findings as a basis for
solving issues connected with practical language teaching. Chapter II:
Integrating Culture and Language is about one of the most intriguing topics of
current language-oriented research: how to integrate culture into the process
of language teaching. Chapter III: Acquisition of Language Structures consists
of studies that investigate the acquisition of certain grammatical structures
in Chinese. There are only a few  papers in the literature on this issue, so
the articles in this chapter are especially important for further research.

One of the most important features of the volume is that each paper makes an
attempt to bring together theory and practice by focusing on theory-building
based on practice or theory application in practice. Thus the book can be
recommended to both researchers and practitioners.
