Theme and topics
Educators today face the challenge of teaching learners who need different Englishes for diverse purposes—all while English and its uses are themselves also changing. These changes raise new questions for policy, teaching, and research. How should governments and educational systems respond?  In what ways should classrooms change? What kinds of research are needed given these new realities? The 14th ESEA conference aims to provide a venue for the discussion of these issues from a variety of perspectives and for stimulating new work in these areas.
