Global Englishes (011X5)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

The module aims to address some of the current and significant issues concerning the growth and use of English around the world, the implications for pedagogy and teacher education. The increasingly international profile of the language, its learners and teaching contexts is reflected in the breadth of nationalities of students on the ELT course, studying, researching and working in this complex field. This area of English language teaching is attracting growing academic attention in terms of journal, book and conference publications, and raises challenging questions for both researchers and practitioners.
