English as a Lingua Franca – ELF – is English as a shared language (usually) between non-native speakers.

As English becomes more and more globalised, we question whether the Native Speaker model should be the goal in the classroom. Prof. Jennifer Jenkins first broached this idea back in 2000 and was met with excitement and resistance.

Native Speaker teachers may feel threatened. Non-native teachers may feel empowered.

Maybe it’s time to reconsider correcting students with “Well, I understand what you mean, but we say it like this…”
