JALT > June Meeting 2007

JALT FUKUI June Meeting 2007

Theme:International English as a Performance Phenomenon

Summary:

For the majority of people in Asia, English is an international language, which is not necessarily related directly to any of the so-called mother-tongue Englishes. Although it is true that there are people who need to learn the native varieties of Englishes because they are studying English/American literature, British/American studies, etc., the great majority of the people are studying English in order to communicate with people from around the world.

In this presentation I will argue for a performance based definition of international English similar to that of bilingualism. International English should be considered in the context of real communication between people from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Another way to put this is to say that international English is created in the process of communication.

Finally, I will argue, therefore, that international English can only be acquired through communicative language learning/teaching.
