【授業の概要と目的(何を学ぶか) / Outline and objectives】
English is the most common international language in business, education and mass media, and is used by more than one billion people in the world as L2 speakers alone. The fall semester focuses on the use of English in the Expanding Circle, particularly in mainland Europe and Japan. We compare the two regions in the users’ ideologies and attitudes towards L1 English and English as a lingua franca (ELF). Through the process of individual or collaborative research, we also discuss a variety of sociolinguistic issues: societal multilingualism and individual plurilingualism, Euro-English, CEFR, linguistic landscapes, etc.

【到達目標 / Goal】
By the end of the course, students will:
(1) learn the current use of English in the Expanding Circle,
(2) understand the tenet of ELF,
(3) develop a critical view of monolingualism as the norm, and
(4) get used to collecting and analysing data for research purposes.

This seminar is presentation and discussion oriented: Students take turns to review a book chapter or journal article assigned by the instructor, noting key terms and concepts, which could be proactively studied by consulting reference materials. The other students in the class contribute to the discussion with their questions and observations. Detailed comments and suggestions for further study are provided at the end of each presentation. All students are expected to write a short or extended essay on their chosen topic towards the end of the 3rd or 4th year, respectively.
