Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

As both consequence and driving force of globalization, English is the currently predominant international lingua franca. Since English language professionals need to be aware of this lingua franca function, this seminar will be dedicated to developing a (socio)linguistically informed understanding of the significance of ELF as a naturally adaptive linguistic development and its theoretical and applied linguistic implications, the latter particularly in the areas of language teaching and language policy.
In the first phase of the seminar, we shall engage in a shared reading of the book Understanding English as a Lingua Franca (Seidlhofer 2011), and then home in on research that has been undertaken on ELF-aware pedagogy over recent years. In this process, participants will gradually develop their own research questions focusing on selected key areas of English language teaching such as curricula, textbooks, reference works, teaching methodology, tests and policy documents.

This course combines mini-lectures, on- & offline assignments, reading-based group work and discussion, and individual research work leading to an oral presentation and a written project report.
