In this issue, we are proud to present a rich collection of articles that encompass a wide array of topics in the field of language education and research. Our first set of articles delves into the dynamics of 'learner engagement and motivation.' This is followed by a fascinating comparative study of educational materials from Hong Kong and Japan, offering a unique cross-cultural perspective on teaching methodologies and content. Another highlight of this issue is an in-depth exploration of the family language policies of Korean-American families. This study sheds light on the intricacies of language use and preservation within bilingual family settings. We also feature a systematic review of the application of the metaverse in language education. Further, our issue includes a scholarly discussion on the pedagogical complementation of the functional-cognitive interface. Lastly, we present an article on concept-based instruction grounded in Vygotsky’s Theory of Mind. This piece explores the application of this influential theory in contemporary language education, offering a fresh perspective on cognitive development in the learning process. We believe that the diverse range of topics not only reflects the dynamic nature of language education but also underscores the importance of interdisciplinary research in understanding and advancing this field.
