The purpose of this course is to investigate the spread of English as an international language: its historical development, socio-cultural diversity and linguistics variation. In addition to numerous readings on native and non-narrative varieties of English, which can be found throughout the world (e.g., Indian English, Singaporean English, Chicano English, etc.), topics related to educational linguistics within a World Englishes paradigm will also be addressed in order to better understand common pedagogical problems and concerns related to the English language teaching in international contexts. This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.
This course is only for students pursuing the non-credit Professional TESOL Certificate. Those who are not certificate seeking should register for LING 322.
