Educational approaches for an international language

Resumen: The fact that English is taking on the status of International Language (EIL) has led to debate about the usefulness of native speaker varieties (principally British or American Standard English) as the language teaching norms in different worldwide contexts. However, the parallel question of the suitability of methodologies to different cultural settings has not been raised. Current EFL methodology, as represented in teacher training courses and text books, remains clearly influenced by Western educational ideologies and objectives. The article looks at the relation between culture and methodology, questions the uncritical acceptance of some recent "individualised" approaches to language teaching, and, in view of recent suggestions about culture and learning styles, proposes that the development of methodological approaches for EIL should take the local cultural conceptions of language, learning and education into account.
