This presentation will examine the complementary nature of language
users’ global aspirations and their local identities, as represented in
the interplay between the teaching of English as a global language, the
development of localized “new” varieties of English, and community
desires to maintain indigenous and immigrant minority languages in the
face of threats from more powerful languages. The presentation is
primarily theoretical, but should provide teachers with new perspectives
from which to view their classrooms.
Also visit Linguapax Asia display table and take a quiz on linguistic diversity.
