Published: 1 February 2018

The Centre for Global Englishes, University of Southampton in conjunction with Kasetsart University, Thailand recently organised the ‘Newton Fund Researcher Links Workshop Grant - English as an ASEAN lingua franca: Implications for language education policy and practice’ in Bangkok from Jan 8-11. The workshop brought together established scholars and early career researchers from Thailand and the UK, including a number of members of CGE, to discuss work in this area and consider more sustainable (economically and socially), locally relevant approaches to language ideology, language policy, and language teaching, with the aim of bringing about long-term changes in Thai education. The workshop was led by a team (Dr Will Baker, Prof Jennifer Jenkins & Dr Julia Hüttner) with international expertise in English as a lingua franca and English language teaching from the University of Southampton and  a team with a wealth of local expertise from Kasetsart University, Thailand, led by Dr Navaporn Snodin.
