Title: Response to Gil: The double danger of English as a global language
Author: Meredith Stephens
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics
Subject Language: English
Japanese
Abstract: Gil (2010) argues that Australia needs to develop proficiency in Asian languages and cultures in order to 'pursue its interests' (p. 54) in the region. One of the reasons is that although English is widely studied in Asia few speakers achieve proficiency. However this view is contrary to the way the status of English is perceived in at least one Asian society that will be discussed here, Japan.
