Title: Principles and Practices of Teaching English as an International Language
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847697028
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

This book critically examines current ELT practices vis-à-vis the use of English
as an international lingua franca. It bridges the gap between theoretical
discussion and the practical concerns of teaching English as an international
language (EIL), and presents diverse approaches for preparing competent users
of English in international contexts. Part 1 examines how the linguistic and
functional varieties of English today complicate ELT, and suggests ways to
address them effectively in an English language classroom. Part 2 showcases
English courses and programs that are specifically based on the EIL
perspective, illustrating how the issues addressed in Part 1 are realized in a real
context. This section also presents a collection of EIL pedagogical ideas that
have been developed and used successfully by English teachers across the
world.
