Rethinking Pedagogy: English Language Teaching Approaches
Shotte, Gertrude
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (11th, Plovdiv, Bulgaria, May 14-17, 2013)
Education, pedagogy and change are watchwords of twenty-first century educators and researchers. They are interrelated on theoretical, as well as practical levels. The renewed attention given to pedagogical changes in the education sphere is propelled by globalisation and its knowledge economy forces. As the need to engage with these "forces" arises, so does the need for communication in a "global language." This gives rise to this question: which language is a global language? As indicated by the work of "scholars" who have an interest in linguistics, that global language is English (Raine, 2012; Rosen, 2010; Crystal, 2010). This paper looks at English Language teaching approaches for learners whose Mother Tongue is not English. [For complete volume, see ED567118.]
