Abstract or Description

English as a lingua franca (ELF) is recognised as the most interesting and controversial subject to have emerged in language teaching in the last 15 years. This collection, written by international experts in the field, brings new insight into the relationship between ELF and language teaching. It covers a wide range of areas in school and university contexts, exploring how the pedagogy of intelligibility, culture and language awareness, as well as materials analysis and classroom management, can be viewed from an ELF perspective.

The chapters are written in a clear, readable style and include a set of engagement priorities that can be used as a stimulus for class discussion. Combining academic rigour with strong practical relevance, this book will appeal to applied linguists working in pedagogy and the social sciences and is essential reading for any teacher or trainee interested in acquiring an international perspective on an exciting new area of English language teaching.
