Abstract:

Present-day globalization, migration, and the spread of English have
resulted in a great diversity of social and educational contexts in which
English learning is taking place. A basic assumption of this book is that
because English is an international language, effective pedagogical
decisions cannot be made without giving special attention to the many
varied contexts in which English is taught and learned. Its unique value is
the combination of three strands - globalization, sociolinguistics, and
English as an international language - in one focused volume specifically
designed for language teachers, providing explicit links between
sociolinguistic concepts and language pedagogy.

International English in Its Sociolinguistic Contexts:

-fully recognizes the relationship between social context and language
teaching

-describes the social and sociolinguistic factors that affect the teaching
and learning of English

-examines how the social context is influential in determining which
languages are promoted in schools and society and how these languages are
taught

-is unique in directly relating basic constructs in sociolinguistics to
English language teaching

-features case studies that illustrate the diversity of English teaching
contexts

Directed to a wide TESOL and applied linguistics professional readership,
this text will be particularly useful and effective for pre-service and
in-service professional development in TESOL for K-12 and higher education
levels.
