Abstract

English language achieves an undoubtedly global status as it develops a special role that is recognized in every country and its impact is exceptional compared with other languages in that the dissemination is far-reaching worldwide. It explores the spread of English over the globe, and English as a lingua franca (ELF), also known as English as an international language (EIL) from varying perspectives, focusing specifically, but not exclusively, on Asian platform as used in their local perspectives. It is distinct mainly in two accounts: first, its overarching theme seen, in particular, from Asian perspectives; and second, and its divergent contributors across languages and cultures mostly from Asia but also from other parts of the world. Although there are now a number of books which specifically focus on English language in Asian contexts, a volume which fulfils both of the above-mentioned points are a rarity. Government officials as well as some scholars appear to be accepting such a spread of English uncritically. Gradually, we will discuss how English as a governing language worldwide is forcing an unacquainted pedagogical and social culture on to its learners, along the way socio-psychologically, linguistically and politically putting them in threat of losing their first languages, cultures and identities, and contributing to the devaluing of local knowledge and cultures.
