donhornsby's curator insight, May 27, 2014 9:21 AM

(From the article): 

Here’s the real challenge to asking good questions. It requires a shift in our own mindset as leaders. We have to let go of three ego needs that hold us back.

Let go of the need to be superior or to prove ourselves (e.g. I’m the smartest person in the room so let me tell you everything I know).Let go of the need to control outcomes (e.g. the best and most efficient way to do this is my way, so let me just help you by telling you what to do).Let go of the need for perfection or need to succeed without any tolerance for failure (we have to do this perfectly because anything less than success will make us or me look bad).

This is where executive coaching really works to uncover limiting beliefs and paradigms we have so we can let our curiosity naturally flow through. Do these apply to you?

English as a lingua franca -- Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

English as a lingua franca (ELF) is the use of the English language "as a common means of communication for speakers of different first languages”.[1] ELF is also “defined functionally by its use in intercultural communication rather than formally by its reference to native-speaker norms”[2] whereas English as a foreign language aims at meeting native speaker norms and gives prominence to native speaker cultural aspects.[3] While lingua francas have been used for centuries, what makes ELF a novel phenomenon is the extent to which it is used – both functionally and geographically. A typical ELF conversation may involve an Italian and a Dane chatting at a coffee break of an international conference held in Brussels, a Spanish tourist asking a local for the way in Berlin, and many other similar situations.

The way English is used as a lingua franca is heavily dependent on the specific situation of use. Generally speaking, ELF interactions concentrate on function rather than form. In other words, communicative efficiency (i.e. getting the message across) is more important than correctness.[4] As a consequence, ELF interactions are very often hybrid.[5] Speakers accommodate to each other's cultural backgrounds and may also use code-switching into other languages that they know.[6] Based on the Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE) and additional research, the following features of ELF lexicogrammar have been identified:[7][8]

However, these features are by no means invariant or “obligatory”. Rather, these forms do not seem to compromise effective communication within an ELF setting when they do occur.

English as a lingua franca (ELF) can be defined as “an additionally acquired language system which serves as a common means of communication for speakers of different first languages”. Here's the Wikipedia entry for ELF.

Vlad Rassypninsky's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:43 AM

The term 'English as a lingua franca (ELF)' is ambiguous since it equates English as the language of global communication in the period of globalization with other international languages (like French, German, Russian, Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin etc) which function as lingua francas in limited areas. Therefore, the more correct term would be 'English as the global lingua franca (EGLF)' to emphasize the uniqueness of the phenomenon. The failure to recognize English as the global lingua franca as a new phenomenon distinct from many national varieties, and particularly from the US and UK national standards, leads to the continued educational practicies when English is still taught as a foreign language (EFL), which promotes the linguistic and cultural domination and gives grounds to the theories of linguistic and cultural imperialism.

The acquisition by English at the turn of the 20th century of the global status has taken the world by storm, and, as a result, while the fact of the globalization of English is widely recognized, its standard is still in the process of formation, which, in its turn, creates difficulties in language learning and teaching.    

Loredana Carson's curator insight, April 29, 2013 12:11 AM

ELF students differ dramatically from domestic students in how they use English language skills throughout their graduate studies.
