English as an international language and teachers' professional identity
thesisposted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Iris Yi-shin. Liou
This thesis found that the notion of English as a lingua franca and its implications in teaching English are difficult for English teachers to accept in a social-cultural context where English is a foreign language. Teachers' professional identity is the key to determine the success or failure of educational innovations.
