International English and its Implications for Teaching and Learning
An IATEFL webinar with Elizabeth Bekes and Marcela Carrasco - English is the world’s second language: for many teachers it is their native tongue, for a lot more it is an additional language. The global nature of English requires new approaches. Instead of the elusive “native speaker”, the norm is increasingly the “fully proficient speaker” using an intelligible version of English spoken by interlocutors for whom English is the chosen means of communication. In the webinar, we will look at what the spread of International English implies for teachers in several key areas, e.g. pronunciation, language proficiency and classroom methodology. The challenges may be different for native and non-native English teachers, but there is a paradigm shift that is worth reflecting on in order to align our teaching and learning with the new priorities.
