Book Information


Title: English as an International Language
Subtitle: Perspectives and Pedagogical Issues
Edited By: Farzad Sharifian
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education

The rapid global spread of the English language has serious linguistic,
ideological, socio-cultural, political, and pedagogical implications as it
creates both positive interactions and negative tensions between global and
local forces. Accordingly, debate about issues such as the
native/non-native divide, the politics of an international language,
communication in a Lingua Franca, the choice of a model for ELT, and the
link between English and identity(ies) has stimulated scholarly inquiry in
an unprecedented way. The chapters in this volume revisit, challenge, and
expand upon established arguments and positions regarding the politics,
policies, pedagogies, and practices of English as an international
language, as well as its sociolinguistic and socio-psychological complexities.
