English in a Multilingual World

7th March 11:00 to 12:00
A joint session for students in Faculties of Arts and Humanities and Business and Law. Location GM2.35
This activity is offered as part of Go Global - an exciting set of activities, , allowing students to engage in an international experience.

English is currently an international language used by speakers from various first language backgrounds, with individuals bringing their own values and cultures to how they express themselves in English. In this presentation, we will start by providing an overview of variations in different varieties of World Englishes. We will then focus on Vietnamese English, illustrating the richness and distinctiveness of its use in Vietnam in two main aspects: pronunciation and vocabulary. This will be done by drawing on findings from our ongoing sociolinguistic research project on English in Vietnam. Next, we will share snapshots illustrating the connection of Vietnamese English speakers to their way of using the language. Finally, we will conclude with implications for the use of English in the present multilingual world.
