English as a lingua franca: recent developments

Given the current position of English as a global lingua franca, this article aims to discuss recent developments in this area of study, based on the papers presented at the 7th International Conference on English as a Lingua Franca, which was held in Athens, Greece, in September 2014. Under the topics: i) theorizing about ILF; ii) ILF and teacher education; iii) Future developments, we bring an analytical view on the issues presented at the event. It is hoped that the information and reflections included here may contribute to the development of an "academic curiosity" about the ELF paradigm (English as a Lingua Franca) as well as to further interest in its implications.
