“This is a timely book to help teachers of Chinese as a second language to deal with the challenges of emergency remote teaching with more confidence. Its unique value lies not only in the careful studies of experiences of Chinese students and teachers during the pandemic, but also in the truly global perspectives brought by researchers in 10 countries around the world within different educational and cultural contexts. With the continuation of online education to a certain extent in the post-COVID era, this book will continue to be a useful reference.”
