Changing Englishes: An Online Course for Teachers

This course was originally written by Christopher J Hall with Rachel Wicaksono in 2013, and fully updated and revised in 2019. The original version was supported by a British Council ELT Research Partnership award and a grant from the York St John Business School.

The course is an output from the ELT Research Partnership award scheme funded by the British Council to promote innovation in English language teaching research. The views expressed are not necessarily those of the British Council.
