Description:

Abstract:

Under the trend of globalisation and internationalisation, English is adopted as the medium of instruction in higher education around the world. However, in non-English speaking countries (i.e. EFL contexts), students often encounter difficulties when learning English and academic content simultaneously. This calls for more carefully designed curriculum and pedagogy to provide sufficient scaffolding for EFL students, especially in terms of the development of their L2 academic literacy, which is essential for success in bilingual education.
