Implications of the English Language Diversification for EFL Learners in Russia

Student: Ekaterina Melchinova

Supervisor: Sergey Ryabchun

Faculty: School of Foreign Languages

Educational Programme: Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2019

As an international language, English continues to dominate in all areas of global cooperation. The subsequent emergence of different variants of English has led Kachru (1986) to suggest that the development of the language should from now on be governed by the global speaking community. Thus, the aim of the study was to examine linguistic and cultural diversification of English and determine whether EFL (English as a Foreign language) learning materials reflected the global status of the language. Quantitative data was gathered through content analysis of two Russian and two British textbooks of the Intermediate (B1-B2) level.
