English as A Powerful Instrument of Community Building in East Asia

For the 10 member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), English has been designated as an official “working language” for the regional organization. In such a diverse group of countries, one common language is not possible. And ASEAN’s success has been instrumental in bringing other larger and more powerful countries of East Asia and the Pacific together under the ASEAN-ledarchitecture of cooperation. The only language that is widely accepted as an instrument of integration for the emerging East Asian community is English. How a “foreign language” can bind and build an emerging community of nations in East Asia is another “Asian Miracle.”

Five Megatrends Shaping the Future of TESOL

English has become a centrepiece of education reform in many countries. I show how this is often in response to developments in economics, demographics, and technology—which are reshaping the nature of teaching and learning English around the world.

David Graddol is director of The English Company (UK) Ltd, which provides consultancy and publishing services in applied linguistics, with a special focus on English language and education policy. In The Future of English? (1997), David set out a new agenda for understanding the growing importance of English as an international language and its role in globalisation. English Next (2006), provided an update on English in global education.  English Next India (2010) explores the changing status of English in India. Profiling English in China: The Pearl River Delta (2013) examines public discourses and the linguistic landscapes of a part of China that is experiencing rapid change. English Next Brazil will be published in March 2014.
