Abstract:

This collection of innovative, thought-provoking papers discusses
contemporary issues, practices and research related to the role and teaching
of English in multilingual countries. The papers, written by experienced
practitioners in the field from a number of different countries, examine how
the English language can be more effectively taught to students in Asia who
speak English as their second, third or fourth language. The book will be of
interest not only to linguists, language teachers and educators but also to
social science researchers involved in exploring the effects language policy
can have on education and society at large.

The eleven chapters in this book are divided into three sections: multilingual
aspects in the teaching and learning of English, code-switching and code-
mixing, and assessment. Their authors came to Karachi from different
academic, cultural and geographic backgrounds and with diverse experiences
of the world of English Language Teaching in order to participate in the Fifth
International Seminar hosted by the Aga Khan University Centre of English
Language.

The contributors are all multi-linguals for whom the question of how best to
teach languages is a challenge they face on a daily basis. This small
collection of papers is likely to become a powerful resource for English
teachers, scholars, and researchers interested in the problems facing
language educators in today's multilingual, multi-cultural world.
