In addition, papers address a wide range of topics relating to the future of and varieties of English; course and materials design; teaching methodology; testing; and administration. The first contributor in the opening ‘Viewpoints’ section is the science fiction author, Arthur C Clarke, who presciently writes about the coming future of online communications and ‘data banks’, and advantages of being able to read in English, the world language. In contrast, Braj B Kachru issues a call for teaching the pragmatics of world Englishes, and for ‘Western’ teaching methodologies to be treated with scepticism.
