English has become the global lingua franca with non-native speakers of English from different linguacultural backgrounds world-wide using the language to communicate with each other. What is it that makes such communication work and what are the challenges involved in these English as a lingua franca-based interactions? In this seminar we will look at how English as a lingua franca (ELF) has established itself as a vibrant field of studies within Applied Linguistics and Language Education. We will discuss relevant theories, concepts, and empirical research findings as well as their pedagogical implications for teacher education and English Language Teaching. Departing from your own experiences as ELF users and based on an overview of the field, we will examine the use of ELF in various domains (e.g. international business, Higher Education, the private sphere) and explore the linguistic and communicative features that have been found to govern ELF communication. We will then consider what the implications of such insights are - or should be - for the pedagogical domain including teacher education, language teaching, and assessment. Information on course requirements will be given in the first session.
