Description

English as an international language is a timely and innovative discipline that offers a new perspective on the use of English in today's globalised and internationalised world. It also examines the implications of the global spread of the English language for intercultural communication. One of the important features of the courses offered in this program is that students are encouraged to critically reflect on their experiences of using, learning, and/or teaching English in a variety of contexts and examine them in the context of the development of intercultural communication skills.
