JACET 2017: The 56th International Convention (day 3 of 3)

Date: Thursday, August 31st, 2017 Time: 9:00 AM - 3:50 PM

Speaker: Plenary speakers Barbara Seidlhofer (University of Vienna) and Phyllis Ghim-Lian Chew (Nanyang Technological University)

As we head toward the first quarter of the 21st century, the importance of communication at a global level is becoming increasingly evident. In practice, there is a great need for a lingua franca. Over the past two decades, there have been remarkable growth and development in ELF (English as a Lingua Franca) theory, research and practice. ELF has always been a means of communication in multilingual settings where English is regarded as a lingua franca among interlocutors from a wide range of linguistic and cultural backgrounds. As the extent and diversity of English use continue to rapidly grow, we need to reconsider ELF by situating it clearly against the backdrop of a globalized world with considerations for issues in applied linguistics and language teaching. For details, please see the JACET 2017 webpage.
