English as a Lingua Franca: What challenges do ELF users face?
This year´s Business English SIG Pre-Conference Event (on the 22nd March) focuses on the issue of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) and asks what we, as Business English trainers, should be teaching when we´re dealing with learners who are operating in ELF contexts or frequently using ELF.
To kick off our discussions about ELF and what we should be teaching, we would like you to share your experiences in response to these two questions:
What challenges do ELF users often face? How can we help them to overcome these challenges?
Mercedes and I are looking forward to hearing what you have to say.
