International education has been growing at an extraordinary pace and shows no signs of abating. The lack of sharing between university and school teachers induced the Faculty of Arts at the University of Hong Kong to underwrite the “Symposium on International Teaching: the Chinese Student” in March 2007 as a means of fostering discussion about the growth of international education and the Chinese learner between educators from schools and universities in Hong Kong and abroad. The value of that symposium and the need for ongoing dialogue on the subject helped to prompt and shape this book from school teachers and university faculty, exploring the concerns and possibilities that are at the heart of this issue. The book deals with various aspects of the Chinese learner and international education.
