A total of 108 studies under five themes have been reviewed: (1) English language teaching; (2) English language curriculum, assessment and reform; (3) Students’ perspectives: motivation and attitudes, learning experience and strategies; (4) Teachers’ perspectives: attitudes and values, language awareness, teacher training and qualifications; (5) Learning outcome: language use, English standards and the impact on teaching and learning. Five ongoing debates/controversial issues emerging from these studies have been identified and discussed. There are critiques and recommendations on the current situation and future development of research.
