DHANBAD, India - Nov. 22, 2013 - PRLog -- The unprecedented spread of English as a glocal language in recent decades has been viewed as a threat to the culture and identity of English learners in the ‘Outer’ and ‘Expanding’ Circles, especially when reinforced by traditional textbooks and materials which are heavily Anglocentric in their cultural content and outlook, and which aim only at helping learners assimilate ‘native-speaker’ linguistic and cultural norms.

Dr. Md. Mojibur Rahman addresses himself to this issue and views English teaching not only as a means to integrate the global community but also to make the various speakers' national identity and culture known to the rest of the world.

Cultural Contexts in English Language Learning and Teaching, is a volume of 18 essays by ELT practitioners from various countries of the world. The essays examine the characteristic dialectical process of tensions between the global and the local in countries like China, Malaysia, Indinesia, Thailand, Korea, Japan, India, and elsewhere.

The contents of the essays, including a Foreword by Professor R. K. Singh are given below:
