As the place of English as a global language continues to develop, the number of high school and university courses taught through the medium of English is increasing. This is a very complex situation, and will have a significant impact on the teaching and learning of English worldwide, for both students and lecturers. It has therefore become a vital component in the postgraduate study of TESOL. The module will provide students with an understanding of the controversies of English as an international language for academic study and the complexity involved in speakers of any language teaching and learning in a second language.
