A Vision for World Englishes in the Expanding Circle
Sakai, Sanzo; D'Angelo, James F.
World Englishes, v24 n3 p323-327 Aug 2005
This paper presents a variety of initiatives in place in our College of World Englishes, and demonstrates how they differ from traditional approaches, and the reason we believe they will have a positive impact on the education and lives of our students. Nearing the end of our third year, we still have a long way to go in developing our program, but there is a solid foundation, and the philosophy of world Englishes is acting in an organic way to create a steady flow of new ideas and programs. The implementation of these ideas will further test and strengthen the acceptance of world Englishes, and we hope this will offer an example to other institutions in Japan and other Expanding-Circle nations.
