Book Information

Title: EIL, ELF, Global English: Teaching and Learning Issues
Edited By: Cesare Gagliardi
Alan Maley
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 96

How can you teach the English language to global English speakers? Can
English be taught as an international language? Is it worth teaching? Isn't it
more proper and profitable to learn a standard variety of English? How
realistic and useful is the identification of an EIL/ELF variety? Can an
EIL/ELF standard be identified? These are some of the questions the present
volume has addressed with the contribution of some of the most qualified
scholars in the field of English linguistics. The book is divided into four
sections. The first part deals with the definition of English as an international
language and English as a lingua franca. Section two takes six different
teaching issues into consideration. The third section examines some learning
issues and the last part of the volume debates the relationship between
teacher and student in an English as a lingua franca environment.
