World English


Read the handout given in class (and is also on the X drive). Create a blog post covering each area, including:

  • Can we use the term ‘Englishes’? Why?
  • The difference between first and second language speakers.
  • English as a lingua franca, including Jenkins’ theory.
  • Kachru’s model of World English diversity (including examples from Canada, India and English as a lingua franca).

Don’t forget that your post needs:

  • At least one picture.
  • Categorising (see this post’s categories).
  • Tagging (see this post’s tags).
