Nonnative Speaker English Teachers / Edition 1by George Braine
Pub. Date: 03/26/2010
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
According to current estimates, about eighty percent of English teachers worldwide are nonnative speakers of the language. The nonnative speaker movement began a decade ago to counter the discrimination faced by these teachers and to champion their causes. As the first single-authored volume on the topic since the birth of the movement, this book fills the need for a coherent account that:
- traces the origins and growth of the movement
- summarizes the research that has been conducted
- highlights the challenges faced by nonnative speaker teachers
- promotes NNS teachers’ professional growth.
No discussion of world Englishes or the spread of English internationally is now complete without reference to the NNS movement. This book celebrates its first decade and charts a direction for its growth and development.
