Whose grammar is it anyway? Grammar in a changing world

Audience focus: All


In this talk I will look at how the growing importance of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), the language of inclusion and the changing use of English in international (social) media may lead to reconsidering what grammar items we want to teach and how we can best present them to our learners.
