A Webinar on "From EFL to ELF: Implications for Language Teachers"

As Seidlhofer and Widdowson (2018) point out, ‘the global learning of English needs to be based on its global use’ and that this means that English as a lingua franca (ELF) ‘corresponds more closely for what is real for learners, and is a more realistic objective for them to achieve’. In this presentation I shall first show how the roles of English have been expanding in many so-called Expanding Circle countries with a focus on the countries of East and Southeast Asia and will illustrate how English has become the major lingua franca of the region.

Digital Stories As Creative Projects for Online Teaching

This webinar will explore how digital stories – short multimodal personal narratives – can engage English language learners in a series of collaborative assignments developed to meet language and content learning objectives.
