English Education in Globalized Age



Koji Nakamura

ross s five suggestion
Ross’s Five Suggestion

We need to make a commitment to achieving a better balance in the coverage of the local and the global in our classrooms.


1 explore the complexities of key concepts in global issues
1. Explore the complexities of key concepts in global issues.

Our global issues classes must deal with the fact that different cultures and different countries occupy radically different positions in the ‘global community’ and ‘interconnections’ in our world need to be explored so we can arrive at a more realistic conception of the various economic, political, and social inequalities that run through our ‘connected’ world.


Another way in which we need to make our global issues classes more realistic and better-balanced is to guard against overly simple and stereotypical presentations of both Japanese and non-a Japanese cultural practices. (Ross, 2000, p.161)


2 emphasize process
2 Emphasize Processプロセス重視で参加型

We would do well to keep in mind how the Global Education Group in Nara puts it when it states that global issues education should be “a participative form of learning. It does not take the form of one sided listening to things whose conclusion is already known, but rather the participants themselves think out solutions as each situation arises.” (Ross, 2000, p.162)



3 leave the deficit theory behind
3 Leave the ‘deficit theory’ behind

In order to do our jobs appropriately and efficiently, we need to have a better understanding of how global issues are covered in Japanese junior and senior high schools.


We may find that they are not covered as much as we would like or with the approaches that we ourselves are comfortable with, but getting a better idea of how much and what kind of exposure students have gotten to global issues before we meet them is essential if we are to improve our teaching. (Ross, 2000, p.163)


4 take issues of national identity seriously
4 Take issues of (national ) identity seriously

There is little doubt that most of us are living in increasingly globalized world. However, for most of us, our sense of identity is till strongly tied up with the source of the prime locality: our nationality.(我々がグローバル化した世界に生きていることは否定できないが、我々のアイデンティティはローカルな自分や国籍に深く拘束されている。)


As Bennet says, we need to be sure our learners can “achieve a psychological balance between cultural pride and identity on the one hand, and appreciation of cultures very different from their own on the other” (Bennet, 1991, p. 183)

5 turn over the floor to japanese voices
5 Turn over the floor to Japanese Voices

Exposing students to Japanese ‘voices’ speaking about the issues covered in class is essential. グローバルな問題についての日本人の声を聞く機会も大切

The above five ‘suggestions’ are meant to be the starting point in a reconceptualization of how we practice global issues education in Japan, and they are certainly not going to solve all the problems by themselves (Ross, 2000, p. 164).





日本文化の心を表象し、世界と対話する能力を育むことこそ、国際化の波に翻弄され、顔なきeconomic giant(経済巨人)と言われる日本に必要なことではなかろうか。(中村、2007)




この異文化に対する態度はより有効な異文化間コミュニケーション能力を育む出発点である。つまり、21世紀の人類共存に必要とされる国際対話能力 (global literacy)と自文化や国家を超える視野 (transcultural and transnational perspectives) を育むのである。 (中村 2007)

The present-day world is inescapably multicultural and multinational. Many of our most pressing problems require for their intelligent, cooperative solution a dialogue that brings together people from many different national and cultural and religious backgrounds (Nussbaum, 2003).

(Cultivating Humanity: A Classical Defense of Reform in Liberal Education)


As language and culture are symbiotic, cultivating global literacy for a peaceful world is oneof the most urgent tasks for educators and researchers. For multicultural citizens of the world, in a more sustainable global village where borders play such a minor role, global awareness, respect for other cultures and communication skills, especially communicative competence in English as an International Language (EIL) will be more vital (Nakamura, 2002).

外国語教育は他者を理解し、自己や自文化を説明できる能力を開発し、異文化間コミュニケーションや国際理解に至る言語文化教育である。広義には、外国語教育は人類の共存のためのコミュニケーション能力を育む人間教育である。( 中村2007 )

Global Literacy: A New Paradigm for Global Issues Education (GIE)

Global literacyincludes cross-cultural competence and sensitivity with multicultural, transcultural and transnational perspectives.


It also requires communicative competence in English as an International Language (EIL) for global dialogue in order to solve common human problems .


Also it develops cognitive, affective, social skills to reconcile from mutual strength and integrate seemingly opposing valueson a higher level for the purpose of equitable coexistence.

Force never works, because you can never destroys the will of people and the power of people.


Idea is equality, coexistence and sustainable life.


The present is our battle ground and knowledge is our main weapons.現在こそ戦場であり、知識こそ武器 

(Edward Said:2003) (VTR)

perspectives on orientalism by edward said in efl education in japan
Perspectives on Orientalism by Edward Said in EFL Education in Japan.サイードのオリエンタリズム

Orientalism is Western centered-conceptions of the Orient. Occidentalism is Eastern-centered views of the West and Europe. Said (1976) defines Orientalism as a Western style for dominating, restructuring, and having authority over the Orient.

Said criticized this Western-centered assumption which he named Orientalism. His contention in Orientalism is that the Western-centered concept of the Orient and the inalienable sense of Western superiority over it which are logically tied up with Darwinian or Hegelian progressivism, colonialism, Euro-centered orientation and ethnocentrism, have been manifestly and subconsciously represented in all the texts on the Orient and Africa by Western intellectuals (Nakamura 2003).

issues of cultures in globalisation

The process of globalization needs to carefully respond to the issue of culture for the purpose of a multicultural and equitable coexistence. In many multinational companies, understanding culture is more important than understanding technology. Being ahead of the competitor in terms of cultural understanding is increasingly more important (Nakamura , 2002).

Culture is the way people approach and resolve dilemmas. Culture is a dynamic process of solving human problems, and these problems come to us as dilemmas. "Dilemma" comes from the Greek

word meaning "two propositions" (Trompenaars, 1998).

global literacy a new paradigm for eil education

Multicultural and trans-cultural perspectives, respecting each cultural identity would be more vital in a true sense of globalization, which should be primarily cultivated as a kernel of global literacy through language and culture education. There must be several basic attitudes to be cultivated as a new paradigm of EIL educators.

First of all, EIL educators should be very aware of the historical background of how English has become a lingua franca in many parts of the world.

Secondly, we should clarify the true meaning of globalization in intercultural and multicultural context with clear understanding of the causes and effects of Orientalism and Occidentalism.

Thirdly we should plant seeds of global literacy deep in students’ habits of their hearts and behaviors. Global literacy includes cross-cultural competence/sensitivity with multicultural, trans-cultural and transnational perspectives. It also develops cognitive, affective and social skills to reconcile from one’s own strength and integrate seemingly opposing values on a higher level for the purpose of equitable coexistence on this fragile earth. Also, it requires communicative competence in EIL for global and peaceful dialogue in order to share and solve human problems with people of the world.

five rationales why eil instructors should include global education in the syllabus
Five rationales why EIL instructors should include global education in the syllabus.

First, world problems, especially global issues affect every member of the human family on this planet. Second, globalisation has created a more interdependent context on the earth, namely what happens in one place affects others in different parts of the world. Third, the attitude of many young people in the "North" is that they need little knowledge about other cultures. Fourth, in the "South" young people tend to copy their peers in the North without giving a critical thought of the effects such a life style has on their families, communities and the earth. Fifth, teaching of intercultural tolerance towards diversity and respect of nature and human rights must start as early as possible at school. With these five rationales in the midst of today’s confused world, it seems self-evident that EFL instructors should be encouraged to play key roles in integrating controversial global issues into the EIL class as a part of global education (Nakamura, 2002).


大学教育には多くの目的がある。豊かな時代に育った日本の学生に対して、南北格差をはじめとするグローバルな問題に向き合うことも必要である。このような問題を学び、各自の考えを論理的に小論文にまとめ上げ、目標言語で発表する能力を養うことも大学教育の一部である。人類共通のグローバルな問題を学ぶことで眠っていた意識を覚醒し、問題の因果関係を分析する。そして、可能な解決策を考え、自分自身の意見を形成し、目標言語で自己表現する。これら一連のプロセスを通して、学習者が達成感を感じる外国語の授業の実践することが必要である。 (中村2007)


The results from the students’ responses to the questionnaires and their

speeches on global issues reveal considerable satisfaction with the integration of global human issues with oral presentation in a learner-centered classroom.

The remarkable development of student’s skills in making persuasive public speeches with valid evidence and sharing their ideas with each other gave

students enjoyment and confidence in self-expression and self-representation

in the target language, especially English as an international language.

Also, students have developed and sharpened their own academic approaches

and problem-solving expertise through the process of web research and sharing necessary information and resources.

Consequently, as a result of this integrated EIL speech communication class, students Could cultivate their global literacy, creating a warm classroom

atmosphere, closer in atmosphere to a target language home rather than a

traditional teacher-directed language classroom in Japan.

We have reviewed a practical college-based experiment conducted to enhance

the awareness of global citizenship and human solidarity, and have argued that

self-expression with global perspectives in English as an international language

is a goal that should not be overlooked by EFL language educators.

The integration of global human issues into EFL speech communication class is

an invitation to be challenged and enlightened for all EFL instructors and their students (Nakamura, 2002).
