Changing Englishes: An Interactive Course for Teachers | York St John

Changing Englishes: An Interactive Course for Teachers | York St John | TELT | Scoop.it
Who the course is for

This course is for experienced and trainee teachers of English as an additional language who are open to new ways of thinking about their profession and are interested in English as it is used around the world, especially as a lingua franca.

 

Unlike many resources and discussions in English Language Teaching, it concentrates on what English teachers teach, and how it is learnt, rather than on how to they teach it.

 

What the course is about

The course invites visitors to ask the following questions:

What is English?How is English used beyond the classroom?How is English learnt in the classroom?How is English learnt beyond the classroom?

Pronunciation of English as a lingua franca | TELT | Scoop.it
Thanks to everyone who joined us in London yesterday for our seminar, the last in the 2013-14 series hosted by the British Council–and thanks also to those who watched online!
Shona Whyte's insight:

"Approximately 80% of interaction in English worldwide takes place with no native speaker present (Beneke, 1991). It is no longer realistic to assume a goal of native-like pronunciation for all learners."
