2.2 The content of ELF-aware teaching

Review Materials

Welcome to “The content of ELF-aware teaching” Section of the ENRICH CPD Course. This Section discusses the content of ELF-aware teaching, including the kind and types of input that could be employed in English Language Teaching (ELT) activities which integrate insights gained from English as a Lingua Franca (ELF). Special emphasis is placed on the general competences and communicative language competences which ELT aims at developing and on the ways these could be viewed from an ELF-aware perspective. In this regard, this Section highlights the ways in which the content of typical EFL teaching can be enriched to address more effectively the needs of the learners in today’s multilingual and multicultural world. This Section includes three Activities in total.
