In this lecture, Professor Sharifian presents an overview of the

emerged as the key topics within the field. These include
renationalization of English, use of English as a lingua franca, politics
of EIL, identity and EIL, attitude towards EIL, ownership of English,
teaching EIL, proficiency in EIL, and native-speakerism. At the end of
the lecture, Professor Kirkpatrick will present a commentary on the EIL
