A Profile of College English Teachers’ Attitude towards English as a Lingua Franca in China

Xu Beibei and Wang Zhuqing
Abstract—Some scholars in China argues that English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) pedagogical models are more suitable and efficient than English as a Native Language (ENL) ones. This paper is an empirical study of college English teachers’ language attitude towards ELF and ELF-based pedagogical models in china. By combining questionnaire survey and individual interview together, this study shows that most college English teachers in China still prefer the ENL-based pedagogical model in their teaching and they are reluctant to accept China English as a new variety, although some of them show tolerance towards China English. It is hoped that this study can help to promote the ELF perspective in foreign language teaching and thus raise teachers’ awareness of ELF.

Index Terms—ELF, pedagogical model, language attitude, China English.
