This module addresses a number of current critical issues in TESOL that arise from the varied nature of English teaching in different global and social contexts. On this module you will explore the implications of the use of English as a Lingua Franca and a means for global communication, as a foreign, second or additional language, and as a medium of instruction for content subjects. You will examine how issues such as cultural factors and differences in learners all contribute to a complex field in which language teachers need to demonstrate knowledge and understanding. Issues pertinent to your own contexts will also be addressed.
