“Classroom Practices in ESL & EFL Contex”

Editors : Tengku Nor Rizan Tengku Mohd Maasum, Zaini Amir, Noorizah Mohd Noor, Tng Cheah Kiu Choon, Nadzrah Abu Bakar, Fuzirah Hashim –

Classroom practices are multifaceted where there exist a myriad of ways in which students learn. The new challenges and demands of classroom practices have led to advances in research on teaching and learning. Due to the learner diversities in terms of ethnic, linguistic and cultural background, there is a need to construct an effective learning environment which involves the teachers’ actions and decisions. Having such insights will provide practical solutions in the attempt to solve pedagogic problems and draw ideas to experiment within the classrooms.

This book brings together eight papers by prominent researchers in the field of second language learning that provide significant insights into pertinent questions relating to classroom practices in ESL and EFL contexts. Significant issues related to ESL and EFL learning and teaching in tertiary level are discussed to provide readers with productive and innovative lessons that will be of use in second language classroom. In general, this book provides resources for readers to explore ideas of ESL and EFL learning environments. Challenges faced by learners when learning English are also addressed. This book is suitable for educators, researchers, language teachers and students.

“Gender, Multiculturalism and Re-visioning”

Editors : Dr. Raihanah Mohd. Mydin, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ruzy Suliza Hashim, Dr. Noraini Md. Yusof and Dr. Zalina Lazim –

“These essays that resist dichotomies that are too simple, resist abstract logic that is too disembodied, and resist colonial cartography that is too rigid in its correspondence theory of truth – they all make it clear that rationality has gotten us where we are. How do we like it? There are rational reasons to see rationality’s limits, and we need to begin to use our imaginations to find other ways of understanding the world.

Another simple and rough way to categorize the essays in this volume is to say that some of them are Old Left (Shih, Manqoush et al., Raihanah, Hashim), and some of them are New Left (McGrath, Leon, Mochizuki, Allen). By Old Left and New Left, I mean the Socialist Left and the Postmodern Left. The Socialist perspective of the Old Left did not require a paradigm shift. It did overturn received notions of which came first, the realm of ideas or the realm of the material, but it still relies on the discourse of social science. Its analysis

generally focuses on allocation of resources and power. The New Left questions the very language in which social problems are posed. It is inflected by multiculturalism, and is more relativist in its epistemology.

Artists and literary critics are critiquing the status quo, but finding different ways of doing it. Their works are symptoms of our times and offer a hope for renovation.” – Michael Barry

“ Language and Cultural Diversity: Global Realities & Challenges ”

Editors :

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Thang Siew Ming, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Pramela Krish, Ms. Wong Fook Fei, Mr. Lin Luck kee, Dr. Jamilah Mustafa and Assoc. Prof. Marlyna Maros

– Whether language should be regarded as a mere “medium” for an already-existing body of “content” (consciousness, idea, or tradition), or whether it should be regarded as constitutive of such content, has come to be, in the 20th and 21st centuries, a central issue in linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, and other disciplines. Recognizing this a book which seeks to address the complex and nuanced ways in which language and culture interact is a timely reminder of the importance and central significance of language issues to broader issues of cultural empowerment, understanding and respect. The intention of this volume of collected writings by a diverse and international group of authors is to add to a greater understanding and sympathy for the significant and important issues that language, reform, culture and communication present. The chapters in this book cover a broad range of issues and perspectives ranging from the pedagogical through to the cultural.

“ Linguistics Issues in Multicultural Contexts ”

Editors :

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Norsimah Mat Awal, Puan Harishon Radzi, Dr. Fazal Mohamed Mohamed Sultan And Dr. Nor Fariza Mohd. Nor

There are diverse issues on language in a multi-racial society which provides a rich ground of inquiry into the linguistic analysis of those issues. Investigations of these linguistic issues will help us to understand better the varied and rich cultures which permeate in a multi-racial society. As a result, this would lead to a better intercultural communication in the global community. The linguistic issues discussed in this book focus on syntax, semantics, stylistics, language varieties and translation. The presentation of core issues in linguistics and language in applied linguistics, would certainly appeal to a wide section of academics and language users. Most studies in this book are based on local Malaysian multi-racial setting, except for one, which investigates the effect of accent in inter-personal communication among non-native speakers of English in the United States.
