The English-Speaking Union annual lecture

in partnership with the British Council

The future of global English-coping with culture

David Crystal

 

There is a widely held view that one of the consequences of the rise of English as a world

language is global intelligibility. However, at the level of everyday communication, cultural

differences between the countries that use English often present a barrier to understanding.

The talk illustrates some of the conversational cross-purposes that have taken place, and

discusses the kind of cultural awareness all English speakers need to have when they

interact with others on a global scale.

 

Who is this for?

All English Language teachers and practitioners - EFL, ESOL, EAL - from newly qualified to experienced.
