"The editors are to be commended for having engineered this interplay, and the evidence is plain to see that it was a worthwhile strategy. ... they do an excellent job of revealing the range of perspectives on fluency and put these perspectives into a coherent framework within the wider field of language learning in general. The volume is more than the sum of its parts and constitutes essential reading for anyone involved with teaching in Asia." (Michael Carroll, JALT Journal, Vol. 37 (2), November, 2015)
"This book compiles studies on four-skill fluency conducted in secondary, tertiary and experimental programmes in the Asian English as a foreign language EFL context. Its aim is to address students' concerns with fluency and communicative efficiency. ... This book presents a shift away from pre-defined fluency and opens up various ways to (re)think about fluency. ... In this wide-ranging book, researchers broaden what is a winning approach to fluency and fluency-research paradigms." (Melissa H. Yu, Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, April, 2018)
