This course is freely available for teachers of English and looks at English as it is used around the world.

Looking for a new opportunity for professional development?

The Changing Englishes online course for teachers is a free resource designed to help trainee and practising teachers of English meet the new challenges—and realise the benefits—of Global Englishes. Users are taken through five self-paced units which introduce new conceptualisations of English and explore their implications for learning, teaching and use.

The course, written by Professor Chris Hall and Dr Rachel Wicaksono from York St John University, was funded in part by a British Council ELTRA grant and launched in 2013. Completely redeveloped and updated on a new platform and now with CPD certification, v.02.1 is packed with activities and opportunities for interaction with other users.

The course typically takes between 10 to 15 hours to complete and all content is free for users to incorporate into their own online teaching or training programmes.
