Why global English may mean the end of ‘English as a Foreign Language’
David Graddol: English Next

In 1997 the British Council published The Future of English? by David Graddol. The book was a combination of research on the roles and importance of English in the world and reasoned extrapolations as to its future developments. It took stock of the apparently unassailable position of English in the world and asked whether we could expect its status to remain unaltered during the following decades of unprecedented social and economic global change.
English Next now draws attention to the extraordinary speed of that change. It argues that we are already in a very new kind of environment and a distinctively new phase in the global development of English. What are the new rules and who will be the winners and who will be the losers? In this new study David Graddol suggests some of the answers by analysing the demographic and economic trends which affect Global English and the language policies worldwide which will influence its future.

David Graddol: English Next Why global English may mean the end of ‘English as a Foreign Language’

Érdekes könyv az angol nyelv jelenéről és a világban betöltött szerepéről. A felvetések a nyelv jövőjével kapcsolatban is többnyire igaznak bizonyultak eddig. Sok mindennel persze nem számolhatott, mint például a BREXIT, de egyenlőre ez nem is befolyásolja az angol nyelvet magát, maximum az angolok nyelvoktatási stratégiáját. Kifejezetten tetszett a „Global English” mint alap világnyelv koncepció és az ehhez vezető új nyelvoktatási szemlélet is.
