Abstract
Even though there is still a dearth of scholarship in L2 simplified Chinese reading among adults, a growing body of research has contributed to this area to examine L2 Chinese reading process and performance. Due to this advancement in current literature, it is imperative to reflect on what has been researched in L2 Chinese reading in recent years and shed light on potential future research directions and pedagogical practices. To fill this gap, a qualitative analytic method was adopted to synthesize 25 selected studies (2009-2018) in L2 simplified Chinese reading among adult learners. Using analytic coding to identify emergent patterns regarding the research questions, methodologies, findings, and research implications, this study proposes that scholars interested in adult L2 Chinese reading conduct research looking at L2 Chinese reading processes embedded in learners’ social and cultural environment, adopting diverse methodological approaches that uncover readers’ voices, advancing understanding in social factors that impact L2 Chinese reading acquisition in classrooms, and attending to different processing levels and various forms of characters/ words/sentences/texts. Pedagogical implications were also discussed.

摘要
本文回顾分析了2009-2018年公开发表的25篇有关成人学习者阅读简体中文的论文。通过分析,本文建议未来的汉语作为二语阅读的研究可以采用更多样的研究方法,充分考察社会文化因素对成人学习者阅读过程的影响,挖掘他们在真实阅读环境中的声音和视角。此外,加强对不同形式简体中文(如更多样化的文字、词语、句式结构等)的信息处理加工研究,产出更多的实证数据,进一步丰富对于汉语作为二语阅读的认知。
