The Struggle to teach English as an International Language e-book

Catalog

Adrian Holliday

Format: Online Resource

This book is about the worlds and conflicts of TESOL teachers and researchers whose professional lives are both enriched and problematized by the cultural and political interfaces created by working with an international language. Central to this discussion is the balance of power in classroom and curriculum settings, the relationship between language, culture, and discourse, and the change in the ownership of English.

English is the main language of international communication, and almost everyone wants to learn it. But which English should we teach, and how?
In this book, Sandra Lee McKay challenges the cultural assumptions underlying much of the English teaching currently taking place. She looks at the implications of the spread of English as an international language for what we teach and how we teach it.
