Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."


Book Information

   

Title: Teaching English to the World
Subtitle: History, Curriculum, and Practice
Edited By: George Braine
Description:

"Teaching English to the World: History, Curriculum, and Practice" is a
unique collection of English language teaching (ELT) histories, curricula,
and personal narratives from non-native speaker (NNS) English teachers
around the world. No other book brings such a range of international ELT
professionals together to describe and narrate what they know best.

The book includes chapters from Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary,
India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore,
Sri Lanka, and Turkey. All chapters follow a consistent pattern, describing
first the history of English language teaching in a particular country,
then the current ELT curriculum, followed by the biography or the
autobiography of an English teacher of that country. This consistency in
the structuring of chapters will enable readers to assimilate the
information easily while also comparing and contrasting the context of ELT
in each country.
