Scope of the Special Issue:
The aim of this special issue is to bring together papers that address different issues related to the effects of migration on ELF-awareness in the wider society and its impact on English language classrooms in various contexts across the world. In this vein, migrants ranging from highly skilled to low-skilled, students from migrant families in mainstream education, study abroad students (e.g. Erasmus students), and teachers who themselves have migrant background will be the focus of attention. In addition, the papers in this issue will present immigrants' perspectives and experience with regard to multilingualism/multiculturalism in rapidly growing immigrant societies and their integration into the local educational contexts where they settle. Last but not least, the papers will discuss the place of English and ELF-awareness in immigrants' everyday educational practices.

The papers will explore the impact of immigration on issues such as intercultural communication, language choice, identity construction as well as pedagogy, teacher education, materials evaluation in relation to ELF and ELF-awareness in educational contexts.

Interested scholars are invited to submit a maximum 500-word abstract for a manuscript that explores issues outlined above.

The abstract submission deadline is 29 October 2018.
