In recent years there has been a global upsurge of interest in all aspects of Chinese culture, economy and society and along with this, an increasing demand for instruction in the Chinese language. This new, fully refereed, journal is intended for an international audience of scholars, applied linguists, educators and policy makers engaged with Chinese as a foreign language. It offers a forum for presenting work from a range of linguistic sub-fields related to Chinese linguistics, language pedagogy, second-language acquisition, assessment, teacher training and curriculum design.

Researching and Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language seeks empirical contributions as well as papers that address theoretical and methodological concerns. In additional to articles, the journal publishes book reviews and conference reports. The language of the journal is English.

Two issues per volume year, June and December, starting in 2015
