Matsuda, Aya – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
One comment I often receive when I talk about teaching English as an international language (TEIL) is that TEIL is all about being politically correct--a mere gesture to be inclusive and egalitarian, promoted by a certain ideological stance. It is true that there are certain ideologies, language and beyond, that are compatible with certain aspects…

McKay, Sandra Lee – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
A great deal has been written about what English as an International Language (EIL) actually is (e.g. Alsagoff et al., 2012; Matsuda, 2012; McKay and Brown, 2016; Sharifian, 2009), ranging from a view of EIL as the many varieties of English that are spoken today to the use of English by second language speakers of English. Thus, EIL is viewed both…

Mahboob, Ahmar – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
Currently, a growing number of teaching approaches focus on aspects of variation in language (e.g. English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), World Englishes, English for Specific Purposes (ESP), genre theories, etc.); however, each of these approaches tends to focus on particular (specific) aspects of language variation and do not fully account for the…

Vettorel, Paola – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
The complex and varied sociolinguistic reality of World Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) has important implications for English Language Teaching (ELT). Besides questioning the validity of the 'native speaker model', the complexity of Global Englishes raises several issues, both at a theoretical and at an applied level, particularly…

Rose, Heath; Montakantiwong, Anuchaya – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
With the growth of English worldwide there have been numerous calls for a paradigm shift from teaching English as foreign language to teaching English as an international language (EIL). While there is a growing body of conceptual literature for teaching EIL, the voices of teachers remain severely underrepresented in this movement. As such,…

Dogancay-Aktuna, Seran; Hardman, Joel – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
Despite the proliferation of publications on teaching English as an international language (EIL) or a Lingua Franca (ELF), the diffusion of these concepts into the world of English Language Teaching has been slow and incomplete. There is some wariness among educators about the teaching of ELF and EIL, with no consensus regarding appropriate…

Xu, Zhichang – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
The English language has been going through a dual process of globalization and nativization. The globalization of English renders the language into a global lingua franca and an international language, whereas the nativization of English diversifies it into varieties of English, namely, World Englishes. Such 'glocalization' of English has…

Towndrow, Phillip A.; Pereira, Andrew J. – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
The call for an expanded, critical and socially-constructed view of literacy in response to contemporary semiotic and technological developments is not new. However, an under investigated area relates to the impact and influence of new media in the teaching and learning of English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). Following an overview of…

Macalister, John – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018

Hockly, Nicky; Dudeney, Gavin – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2018
Anybody who has lived through the past decade of technological developments will know how quickly our world is changing. And what happens outside our teaching contexts, out there in the real world, will inevitably -- at least some of it -- end up having an impact on what we do inside our classrooms, lecture halls, schools and colleges. Some of the…
