Contenido principal del artículo

Jhon Eduardo Mosquera Pérez

Resumen

El inglés como lengua franca es un fenómeno que ha ganado importancia en los últimos años. En el escenario internacional, la literatura académica ya ha explorado los posibles beneficios de incorporar ELF en el campo ELT. En Colombia, sin embargo, son escasos los trabajos empíricos y conceptuales sobre dicha área. A la luz de esto, en este artículo reflexivo se discute la posibilidad de incorporar progresivamente ELF en ELT en Colombia. En primer lugar, se analiza ​​qué es ELF y se diferencian este y otros términos que se han utilizado para referirse a este fenómeno lingüístico. En segundo lugar, se presentan algunas de las áreas que deben tenerse en cuenta (diseño de materiales, prácticas de evaluación, por mencionar algunas) si se quiere integrar ELF en el área de ELT en el contexto nacional. Por último, se exponen algunas conclusiones, así como posibles escenarios de investigación en lo que respecta a ELF.
