interconnections with pedagogy and a host of other disciplines are being currently
discussed, acknowledged, and investigated. Targeting English language educators who
work with English language users from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds in a
wide variety of settings, ELF can uniquely be interconnected with issues affecting and
related to identity, language policy-making, intercultural awareness, technology, and
