English Language Ideologies in Korea: Interpreting the Past and Present By Jinhyun Cho
English | PDF | 2017 | 191 Pages | ISBN : 3319590162 | 2.64 MB

This volume critically examines the phenomenon of “English fever” in South Korea from both micro- and macro-perspectives. Drawing on original research and rich illustrative examples, the book investigates two key questions: why is English so popular in Korea, and why is there such a gap between the ‘dreams’ and ‘realities’ associated with English in Korea? These questions are explored through the eyes of English-Korean translators and interpreters, who represent the professional group most intensely engaged in the zeal for English language mastery.
