ELF Communications って？
ELF is the function of English as a lingua franca. While not the first global lingua franca, the use of English online and in various media has accelerated its spread around the world. Where English is used to facilitate communication between people who do not share a first language, this is ELF communication.
The guiding principle of this website is to curate and create examples of ELF language usage to assist users all over the world in becoming more confident to use English as a medium of interaction without reference to so-called 'native speaker' norms.
Our primary focus is university level language students. However, the materials will be of benefit to anyone interested in using the English language for their personal, academic, or professional benefit.
