Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The class aims to encourage students to find their own voice in English as a Lingua Franca. Emphasis will be placed on face-to face communication and attention also paid to non-verbal communication in multicultural settings. Special consideration will be given to non-hierarchical and inclusive modes of communication in diverse varieties of English.
Students will be expected to develop awareness of various forms of English used globally (World Englishes) and to respect local varieties.
This will be achieved through discussion, presentations and teamwork as well as reading selected literature.
