The spread of English as a global language has stirred a debate about whether English
programs should prepare students to learn English from the Global Englishes perspective.
This research-informed paper offers a review of the literature on the importance of linguistic
diversity and innovative English language teaching practices that integrate the Global
Englishes perspective into academic teaching. While being engaged in thought-provoking
reflection, the readers will gain an understanding of the critical aspects of promoting Global
Englishes in the classroom and be encouraged to consider their experiences and views.
