International Conference on Teaching English as an International Language
As the world’s lingua franca, English has become the default language for international language. What are the implications of this for teaching and learning English in the classroom? How do we adapt or create content that reflects local culture, while teaching learners to communicate effectively with both Moroccan and non-Moroccan teachers of English? How do we shape tools, materials and institutions that will promote the teaching of English not as a foreign language (i.e., belonging to a foreign country) but as an international language?
