Volume Title: Towards a Pedagogy of English as an International Language
The drastic increase in the number of second language speakers of English has shifted the cultural basis of English and significantly altered the nature of English. Researchers are invited to consider whether these changes have started to challenge traditional assumptions of ELT pedagogy: that interest in learning English is largely the result of linguistic imperialism; that ELT research and pedagogy should be informed by native speaker models; that the cultural context of ELT should be derived from the cultures of native speakers; that the culture of learning that informs communicative language teaching CLT provides the most productive method for ELT.
In particular submissions should focus on attempting to answer the following questions:
What are the defining features of an international model of English language?
Have these features altered the nature of English itself?
Should the pedagogy for teaching English change, as a result of this change?
Papers should follow APA style of referencing.
Abstract should be no more than 350 words.
