In South Asia, English is the major link language for people from diverse linguistic backgrounds. With globalisation and the subsequent rise in the demand of English, almost all South Asian countries are in the process of introducing English at the early school level. This widens the scope of investigating into the national policies regarding English and probing the status of English language in relation to pedagogy in the countries of the South Asian region.

English Language Education in South Asia provides a strong foundation for scholarly work on ELE in South Asia. The volume contains compilation of scholarly and investigative essays, especially written for this volume, by some of the most prominent and emerging scholars of English language education in South Asia. The chapters provide up-to-date information on the politics, policy, theory and practice of ELE in seven countries of South Asia - Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. The volume, divided into three sections - Policy, Pedagogy and Politics of Pedagogy - investigates how the socio-economic, local and global language politics shape the ELE in South Asia. It also addresses the theoretical as well as practical issues of classroom procedures, teacher preparation programmes, resource management, examinations, educational constraints and limitations.
