English as a Medium of Instruction at an Italian Engineering Faculty barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
The attention to Languages for Special Purposes (LSP) has a long and well-established tradition in the university scenario; however, recently the introduction of Integrating Content and Language in Higher Education (ICLHE) has fostered new and complex issues with regards to lecturing style, listening comprehension, students’ levels of performance, students’ needs, etc. In the LSP context, the knowledge of the foreign language is required in order to understand texts and to produce language in that particular code; the ICLHE context has broadened the scenario, as students are required to master a wider range of skills related to studying through a foreign language. Several studies have focused on the teaching of English in ESP (English for Special Purposes) and EAP (English for Academic Purposes) contexts; at the moment many others focus on English used as Lingua Franca in Academic settings (ELFA), on English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI), on English as an Additional Language (EAL), and on the use of English in a ICLHE context. The presence of so many different acronyms reveals the complexity of a phenomenon on whose definition this work tries to provide further insights.

The Use of Phrasal Verbs in English as a Lingua Franca barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
This book offers a study of the use of phrasal verbs in English as a lingua franca (ELF). It gives insights into how ELF speakers use specific phrasal verbs based on an empirical study in the VOICE corpus. The study reveals that most of the phrasal verbs analyzed in VOICE seem to be used in a ‘conventional’ way. However, there are several instances of phrasal verb use that seem to be different to an ENL use for a variety of reasons. The analysis of these utterances indicates that although ELF speakers sometimes seem to use phrasal verbs differently than ENL speakers, and that some instances of phrasal verb use may even be considered ‘incorrect’ in terms of ENL standards, a ‘non-conventional’ phrasal verb use does not seem to affect the conversations. Moreover, the interactions suggest that the phrasal verb use in VOICE sometimes seems to be based on the ‘open-choice principle’ rather than the ‘idiom principle’. The findings are exemplified by reference to corpus extracts. The analysis of the utterances scrutinized for this study indicates that some claims about the phrasal verb use of native speakers do not seem to hold with regard to the use of phrasal verbs by ELF speakers.

Team teaching English in Japan barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
In Japan, the team teaching of English language classes has been a growing phenomenon since the late 1980s. Team teaching typically involves two teachers: a Japanese teacher of English who has a university degree in English or education and a teaching qualification, and an assistant English teacher who is usually an untrained recent university graduate from Britain, the United States, or another country whose citizens are primarily native English speakers. The goal of team teaching is to improve Japanese students'' English abilities by having a native English speaking assistant in the class as a model of the target language. These assistants are often popular with students, their parents and administrators, primarily because they are seen to provide motivation for language learning. Japanese teachers may also appreciate assistants, especially as co-workers with whom the workload can be shared. However, there are also problems which are sometimes ignored in surface-level discussions of team teaching. This book describes the origins team teaching in relation to the growth of English as a lingua franca.

Varieties of English barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
This book entitled “varieties of English - A Guide to World Englishes" will be useful to M.A (English) students especially in the area of Linguistics and post-graduate teachers. Modern English, sometimes described as the first global lingua franca, is the dominant language or in some instances even the required international language of communications, science, information technology, business, entertainment, radio and diplomacy. Its spread beyond the British Isles began with the growth of the British Empire, and by the late 19th century its reach was truly global. Following British colonisation from the 16th to 19th centuries, it became the dominant language in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. A working knowledge of English has become a requirement in a number of fields, occupations and professions such as medicine and computing; as a consequence over a billion people speak English to at least a basic level. It is one of six official languages of the United Nations. One impact of the growth of English is the reduction of native linguistic diversity in many parts of the world. Its influence continues to play an important role in language attrition.

Muslim Speak In English Language Teaching barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
There is a shared trans-cultural identity among expert English speaking Muslim teachers. Whether English is their L1 or L2, they express it through identifiable shared lexical norms. This research investigates the attitudes of Muslim teachers towards using Patterns of Islamic Terminology (PITs) naturally in an academic environment. Do Muslim Saudi students acquire English more easily through breaking down barriers between teacher and student by the use of such terms? Does it reduce the conflict between the student’s cultural identity and the English Language? Does a shared Muslim identity lead to code switching into religious expressions, etymologically Arabic in origin, even if the users of the terms are not Arabic speakers? If so, is it a teachable English lingua franca that crosses borders? Does it contribute to the understanding of how language can cross over from mono-cultural significance to multi-cultural international use? Will it help Muslim students relate to English, and foster acquisition? Does its deliberate or natural use help teachers reach the students they teach? This book tries to provide some of the answers to these questions.

Understanding Malay Academic Underachievement in Singapore barbara seidlhofer understanding english as a lingua franca
Due to Singapore‘s multi-racial characteristic, our bilingual policy has adopted English as lingua franca and Mandarin, Malay, Tamil as mother tongue for each racial group. This paper employs a deconstructivist approach to study Malay academic underachievement through uncovering the operations underlying the racial stereotypical essentialist claim, specifically focusing on whether a race and its native language (Malay) can possibly account for the educational outcomes for the Malays. Focus group interview was conducted with six Malay undergraduates engaged through personal contacts and snowball sampling. This study shows how language constitutes a grey zone between multiracialism and assimilation on both micro (individual) and macro (societal) levels. Through linking both micro (bilingual policy) and macro levels ("modern Singaporean") in terms of language, the findings of this study highlight how academic achievement or underachievement becomes simply a "race" issue that develops to a taken-for-granted reality when it could be unearthed as a language issue.
