This book explores ways to prepare teachers to teach English as an International Language (EIL) and provides theoretically-grounded models for EIL-informed teacher education. The volume includes two chapters that present a theoretical approach and principles in EIL teacher education, followed by a collection of descriptions of field-tested teacher education programs, courses, units in a course, and activities from diverse geographical and institutional contexts, which together demonstrate a variety of possible approaches to preparing teachers to teach EIL. The book helps create a space for the exploration of EIL teacher education that cuts across English as a Lingua Franca, World Englishes and other relevant scholarly communities.

In this important new book on Teaching English as an International Language, Aya Matusuda has brought together a unique collection of more than 30 EIL practitioners and researchers from around the world, including Australia, Brazil, Italy, Japan, Russia, Singapore, Turkey, Vietnam and elsewhere. The inclusion of a collection of pedagogical ideas in the final chapter makes this an original and welcome contribution to the EIL literature.

This book is timely in that it takes up the challenge of change: it brings together, from the perspectives of World Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca, various innovative proposals for teacher education that seek to take appropriate pedagogic account of the global role of English in today's world.

This volume is a significant contribution to the field of EIL and ELT education. Each chapter responds to fill the gap about teaching of EIL that still remains at theoretical level (Matsuda, 2012) in teacher education. Thus, it is clear that this volume achieves its purpose of bridging the theory/practice division and offering both theoretical models and a wide range of sample materials for teacher educators who are interested in adopting or integrating EIL perspectives in their teacher education programs, courses, units, or lessons.
