English language best taught by native speakers or multilinguals?

Hong Kong’s primary language is Cantonese, and uses such Chinese language extensively: newspapers and news broadcasts, medium of instruction in school, session at the legislative hall, and just about everywhere. Therefore, it is understandable that there is demand for foreign English teachers to aid the local education system in maintaining a good level of English literacy in the city.

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English | YUC Educational Psychologists | Scoop.it

"This site provides instructions for writing essays in English for a US academic audience. This site also contains academic essays by ESL and EFL students writing in English for university level classes."

 

Shona Whyte:

Erlyn Baack, ESL writing instructor, ITESM, Quertaro Campus (Mexico) maintains the site http://eslbee.com on advanced composition for non-native speakers of English: advice, examples and exercises for academic writing for intermediate learners and beyond.

 

Here's a review by Jennifer Banton (University of Quebec, Montreal)

"Advanced Composition is a clean looking unified site. It is well planned and easy to follow. There is no advertising to clutter the pages, and all images are directly related to the sites' content and purpose. The audience is specified, and the stated goals are achieved. The author takes great care to cite secondary information, and he includes useful links to related sites. All of this sets a very much appreciated formal and academic tone. In comparison to other Online Writing Labs, Advanced Composition stands out as one of the few which offers higher order writing instruction, including university level sample writing."

7 Golden Rules: Blogging in English for Non-Native Speakers

7 Golden Rules: Blogging in English for Non-Native Speakers | YUC Educational Psychologists | Scoop.it

English is the language of the Internet. If you are the monoglot citizen of a country like Denmark, you are—through no fault of your own—restricted to an audience the size of metropolitan San Francisco.

 

Even for the native speakers of a major European language such as German, English is the only available ticket to a global readership.

 

This is why virtually everybody nowadays blogs in English.

 

Writing in a foreign language, however, is not an easy skill to acquire. I am not suggesting that simply by reading this article, you will become a fluent writer. But I can show you how to get there—and point out some of the most dangerous traps along the way...
