In a globalised world, learners are very much likely to be confronted with varieties of English that are NOT (yet) part of regular English lessons. In the course, we will, first of all, discuss models from the "World Englishes" paradigm that allow us to describe and structure the range of varieties of English that fall under this term. Additionally, we will discuss the concept "English as a Lingua Franca". You will have the opportunity to research a variety you are interested in and present it in adequate form to your fellows. In the second half of the course, we will assess teaching material already available, and design as well as discuss our own material for the use at German secondary schools.
