Hello everybody. Recently we discussed the role of English in the world today. We took a look at Kachru's circles and discussed World Englishes. For your fourth ODB assignment, which is due 10/28 (11:59pm), you should take a look at Carla Power's Newsweek article Not the Queen's English (in the PDF Files provided) and discuss the following questions. Remember to compose 1 new topic and 2 replies to your classmates. It's always a good idea to personalize--give examples from your own personal experience learning and teaching English.
What are the statistics of English usage in the world today?
Do these numbers surprise you?
Which countries were mentioned in this article? Why?
After reading this article, how do you feel about the English becoming the common linguistic denominator?
This is where Jason's ICC students can submit their fourth ODB assignments. (Deadline: 10/28 11:59pm)
