World Englishes

This book describes selected varieties of World Englishes within the framework of ELT and validates the role of multilingual and multicultural ELT teachers.

The model of English that should be used in classrooms has long been a subject of debate. World Englishes, Implications for International Communication and English Language Teaching (with an accompanying audio CD), describes varieties of World Englishes and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of selecting a particular variety from the point of view of both teachers and learners. It aims to examine and re-evaluate concepts such as 'standard', 'variety', 'native speaker' and 'non-native speaker', and to validate the role played by multilingual and multicultural English language teachers, arguing that context and learner needs should determine the variety to be taught.
