Course Description: This course examines English as a Lingua Franca, or global language, particularly in business. The course explores how English as a global language has made the world seemingly homogeneous but actually it is still quite culturally diverse. Additionally, nuances of languages through the translation of national anthems are explored. Students first do readings at home on such topics as English as a global language, Kachru's three circles, world English, native vs. non-native, criticisms against self, language and thoughts, McDonaldization, Lewis's cultural categorization, contrasting logics, and globalization and nationalism then discuss these topics in class which becomes the foundation for weekly essays on each topic. Emphasis is placed on discussion rather than lectures. Text: D. Graddol, ENGLISH NEXT. Assessment: class participation (10%), homework assignments (20%), and 10-page final paper (70%).
