Title: Emerging Issues in TEFL
Subtitle: Challenges for South Asia
Edited By: Sabiha Mansoor
Aliya Sikandar
Nasreen Hussain
Nasreen M. Ahsan
Description:

The emerging need for English as an international language for higher
education, work, as well as business and trade in South Asia is posing a
number of challenges for language planners, educationists, teachers and
students. This book authored by some of the leading specialists and
practitioners in the field is a timely addition to the learning and
teaching of English as a second or foreign language. The book provides
insights into the complex issue of language planning and makes
recommendations for bilingual education policy in which English, the
national language and the ethnic languages are part of a framework that
leads to additive bilingualism thus enriching the verbal repertoire of
South Asians for various purposes, and providing them equal opportunities
to access higher education and employment. This volume is also a valuable
resource for educationists and teachers equipping them with the latest
approaches and methodologies in teaching English as well as useful
strategies for managing large classes, developing educational materials, as
well as assessments that are suitable for learners in South Asia.
