Title: The Globalisation of English and the English Language Classroom
Edited By: Claus Gnutzmann
Frauke Intemann
URL: http://www.narr.de/isbn.php?isbn=978-3-8233-6388-0
Description:

The English language is the medium of globalisation and it is itself deeply
affected by globalisation. As a result, the teaching and learning dimension
of English as a tool for global communication needs rethinking - especially
in the traditional English language classroom, which is still largely based
on Anglo-American language norms and contents. The articles of this volume
reflect the ongoing international discussion with regard to the use and
acquisition of English in a world-wide context. The contributions cover
four essential domains of this discussion: 1. Political, Cultural and
Sociolinguistic Dimensions, 2. Teaching and Learning English in a Global
Context: "Old" and "New" Standards, 3. Learners in Primary, Secondary and
Higher Education: Focus on Europe and 4. Teacher Education. The volume goes
beyond the language teaching context and approaches the globalisation of
English from several perspectives.
