Global Englishes is an overarching term that includes research in the overlapping fields of World Englishes, English as a Lingua Franca (ELF), English as an International Language (EIL), and translanguaging. Strategies for Global Englishes Language Teaching (GELT) include: increasing our learners’ knowledge about World Englishes and ELF, showing respect for multilingualism in our classrooms, raising awareness of our learners’ knowledge of ELF strategies, emphasising respect for diverse cultures and identities in our classrooms, and changing English language teacher hiring practices.
