This issue features several compelling articles that address innovative strategies in education and language acquisition. The first article explores the integration of language and medical education within the context of China's educational reform, highlighting the potential of a language education intervention to enhance students' engagement with medical discourses and communicative competencies in clinical settings. The second article delves into the role of non-literal language, specifically metaphors, in second language (L2) vocabulary acquisition.

More articles are under copyediting and will be published very soon.
