Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
The sociopolitical dimensions of English language teaching are central to our profession. These dimensions include language policies, cultural expectations, and the societal roles of languages. This book aims to present these issues to practising and aspiring teachers in order to raise awareness of the sociopolitical nature of English language teaching.
