New book on Theory and Practice from a Cognitive Perspective: Teaching English in Greater China

20 Sep 2023


This new book by our Dr Renia Lopez, published under Springer Nature, integrates cognitive linguistics into existing classroom approaches, providing practical lesson plans. Developed by English teachers from China and Hong Kong, these plans offer step-by-step instructions, resources, and theory explanations.

The lesson plans encourage teachers to be creative by adapting material to engage students. Although the target is English teachers, the theoretical principles apply to any foreign language, and the examples can be modified for other languages. It is not limited to Chinese contexts but appeals to those interested in embodied cognition as a teaching approach. It serves as a companion for teachers to reflect on their existing practices, to provide new ideas and to make them aware of the many factors affecting learning.
