This article investigates the relatively unexplored field of reflective journal writing by an on-line tutor, in this case working with a group of Chinese learners of English attending an intensive communication skills programme at a tertiary-level institution in Singapore. The results reported highlight the role of the reflective journal in identifying and clarifying the challenges in the approach adopted. The article concludes by indicating some of the pedagogical implications of the tutor’s experiences for colleagues working with Chinese students on-line. Comments and suggestions are also made that are considered relevant to wider on-line language learning contexts.
