   schema:reviewBody ""The fifteen essays collected in this book by scholars from Hong Kong and Mainland China offer ground-breaking perspectives on the political, cultural and pedagogical issues surrounding the English language and its use in the age of globalization. They represent pioneering work in examining how English functions as a global language in these Chinese contexts, as well as how the mastery of this increasingly, culturally and linguistically, hybridized language has become a challenge. An issue that teachers and learners of English in Hong Kong and Mainland China now face is the growing recognition of the important cultural roles non-Western Englishes play in the new, globalized world order."
