Course Description: This course provides a brief overview of educational and intercultural issues involved in teaching English as a foreign language on the continent of Europe. Participants gain increased knowledge and awareness of the issues concerned, and how to deal with certain potential problem areas. They learn to investigate these issues critically and independently, and to discuss them at an academic level and in an appropriate context by means of response papers, classroom debate, and presentations. Topics include: status and prestige of different varieties of English in Europe; differing European attitudes to the use of English in local, intra-European, and international communication; the question of specifically European varieties of English. As part of their course work, students are asked to investigate the impact of such issues on either English teaching practices and priorities in Europe, or communication and miscommunication between European users of English. Note that this is not a practical course in which you learn how to teach English, or which covers all aspects of teaching methodology. English Language Teaching (ELT) is discussed within the framework of multilingual and inter cultural communication. Consequently, the course is mostly concerned with social and sociolinguistic issues such as attitudes to language and language learning, language policy in a globalizing world, and the principles of effective intercultural communication.
