The emerging need for English as an international language for higher education, work, as well as business and trade in South Asia is posing a number of challenges for language planners, educationists, teachers and students. This book authored by some of the leading specialists andpractitioners in the field is a timely addition to the learning and teaching of English as a second or foreign language. The book provides insights into the complex issue of language planning and makes recommendations for a bilingual education policy in which English, the national language and theethnic languages are part of a framework that leads to additive bilingualism thus enriching the verbal repertoire of South Asians for various purposes, and providing them equal opportunities to access higher education and employment. This volume is also a valuable resource for educationists andteachers equipping them with the latest approaches and methodologies in teaching English as well as useful strategies for managing large classes, developing educational materials, as well as assessments that are suitable for learners in South Asia.
