Teaching pronunciation for English as a Lingua Franca: a sociopolitical perspective

Jenkins, Jennifer, (2005) Teaching pronunciation for English as a Lingua Franca: a sociopolitical perspective Gnutzmann, Claus and Intemann, Frauke (eds.) In The Globalisation of English and the English Language Classroom. Gunter Narr. 287 pp, pp. 145-158.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The English language is the medium of globalisation and it is itself deeply affected by globalisation. As a result, the function of English as an international tool for communication needs rethinking in the English language classroom. The articles of this volume represent different, sometimes controversial perspectives. The contributions cover five domains: 1. Political and Sociocultural Dimensions, 2. Linguistic and Sociolinguistic Exemplification, 3. Teaching and Learning English in a Global Context: 'Old' and 'New' Standards, 4. Learners in Primary, Secondary and Higher Education: Focus on Europe and 5. Teacher Education. The sections provide different focuses and use different approaches to the globalisation of English and its possible consequences for the language classroom.
