Previous Session Complete and continue  


In this short presentation I'll walk you through the course curriculum and tell you a bit more about what the course is about, how it's structured, who it's for and what the aims and goals are.

If after watching you still have any questions about the course, leave me a comment below, and I'll be happy to clarify any doubts you might have.

Before you jump right in to Lecture 1, try to think about the questions below. Feel free to post your thoughts below:

  • What is Standard English and who gets to decide?
  • Are New Englishes (e.g. Indian, Kenyan) examples of broken Standard English or valid varieties of the language? Why (not)?
  • What is English as a Lingua Franca?
  • What culture or cultures should we expose our learners to in the English classroom?
  • Which pronunciation models should we use?
  • How do course books present the English language and its users?
