The current fast developments in China have led to an increase of the number of Chinese learners of English and other European languages as well as an increase of speakers of European languages learning Chinese. This emerging interest in learning and teaching Chinese all over the world has, in turn, increased the demand for qualified research to support teaching of Chinese as a second language. For instance, in recent years, we have witnessed a significant increase of university students who study Chinese, and initiatives have been started to teach Chinese at secondary schools. Also, the number of Chinese exchange students in overseas countries increased enormously.
