International Requirement
The purpose of this course is to investigate the spread of English as an international language: its historical development, socio-cultural diversity, and linguistics variation. In addition to numerous readings on varieties of English, which can be found throughout the world (e.g., Indian English, Singaporean English, Chicano English, etc.), topics related to educational linguistics within a World Englishes paradigm will also be addressed in order to better understand considerations related to the English language teaching in international contexts.
