‘How to Teach English as a Lingua Franca (and Tackle Native Speakerism)’ | Marek Kiczkowiak, Robert J. Lowe, authors | Tue, 28 April 2020, 15:00 – 16:00

‘While it is clear English is primarily used as a global language of international communication, a lingua franca (ELF), it is not entirely clear what teaching ELF might entail. Drawing on ELF research findings and classroom-based ideas, this talk will provide participants with clear principles and practical ideas for teaching ELF and show how this would differ from teaching EFL or ESL. It will also be argued that this shift to teaching ELF can help tackle the ideology of native speakerism, or the belief that those perceived as ‘native speakers’ are superior not only linguistically, but also pedagogically.’
