Book Information


Title: English as a Lingua Franca in Higher Education
Subtitle: A Longitudinal Study of Classroom Discourse
Written By: Ute Smit
Series Title: Trends in Applied Linguistics 2

With English-medium higher education burgeoning in Europe and elsewhere
outside the English-speaking world, this book is the first to offer an
ethnographically-embedded analysis of such classroom discourse by taking
cognizance of English functioning as a lingua franca (ELF) in international
student groups. By virtue of investigating one such educational programme in its
entirety, the study also enlarges the present knowledge on ELF discourse as it
offers novel insights into the interactional dynamics that shape and develop an
educational community of practice.

Key feature:

- comprehensive discussion of English as a lingua franca in the European
education system
