Reviews

Offers a timely examination of why so many teachers of English can articulate so little about how the language works, and predicts that the days of the unqualified native-speaking teacher 'winging it' in classrooms around the world may be numbered. The greatest rewards will in future accrue to those teachers who possess disciplinary expertise through their knowledge of the language system. The book explores how, in the era of global English as a Lingua Franca, these teachers will not necessarily be native English speakers. * David Oakey, Lecturer in TESOL and Applied Linguistics, University of Liverpool, UK *


This book challenges many of the assumptions that teachers may have about the status of English, the TESOL profession itself, and issues related to linguistic inequality, politics, power, race, and economics. The message of the book is clear: English language teachers need to have specialized knowledge not only of the mechanics of language but of how, why, and by whom language is actually used. * Sarah Knowles, Professorial Lecturer, TESOL Program, American University, USA * Offers a timely examination of why so many teachers of English can articulate so little about how the language works, and predicts that the days of the unqualified native-speaking teacher 'winging it' in classrooms around the world may be numbered.
