About this product
- DescriptionEnglish today, is a truly global language, which plays an important role in international communication, trade, diplomacy, sport, science, techlogy and culture. One of the consequences of the global predominance of English is that n-native speakers of English w outnumber native speakers. Unlike many international languages, English has official body prescribing its rms and this has led to a complicated picture of English diversity. This collection of essays by internationally rewned academics brings together different theoretical perspectives that reflect this debate on rms. The first section examines different conceptions of English as an international language, looking at world Englishes, native-speakers and 'standard' English. The second section looks at the pedagogical implications of English as an international language, and addresses such questions as how can we design a curriculum for teaching English, what methods are most effective for teaching English, and what are the key considerations in the ESL classroom? English in the World will be of interest to students and researchers of world Englishes, applied linguistics and English as a second language.
