内容

テーマ:          「Moving Towards ELF: Daunting Challenges for  English Teachers and Learners in Thailand」

講演言語: 英語

要 旨:          As Thailand has become an integral part of the  ASEAN Economic Community since 2015, English is evidently playing a more crucial role as a lingua franca between L1 Thai speakers and those speaking other native languages. Unlike some ASEAN nations where the majority of the citizens speak English as an official or second language, e.g. Malaysia, Singapore, the  Philippines (Kirkpatrick, 2011), in Thailand, which is a member of the Expanding Circle (Jenkins, 2015; Kachru, 1985), English is now regarded, not as just an important foreign language as it used to be, but as an global language with its far more increasing use in a number of contexts, e.g. education, news,  media, alongside Thai. Given its current status  as a significant tool for mutual understanding  in international communication, the focus of English language pedagogy seems to be shifted from accuracy and fluency to acceptability and intelligibility. Such a change means a real challenge for both ELT practitioners and learners.
