ThemeFostering English Communicative Competence for Peace and Friendship
Abstract: Along with the globalization of politics and business, developing Japanese people's communicative competence in English has long been recognized as a matter of urgent importance. No one can deny the fact that English now functions as a de facto lingua franca connecting people throughout the world together for many purposes, even beyond politics and business. While there has been severe criticism of its excessive predominance, the benefits of sharing a common language are also undeniable, especially now when global communication and cooperation are more vitally needed than at any time in the past. How can English education contribute to the promotion of world peace and friendship? What would communicative competence for such purposes be like and what should we as English educators do to cultivate it? These questions will be discussed and considered by participants from Japan and throughout the world at this international convention.
