OLD English language, LINGUISTIC geography, ENGLISH language education, FOREIGN language education, MULTILINGUALISM, and CONFERENCES & conventions
The article focuses on the issue of Anglo-Saxon language and its inclusiveness in British, U.S. and Canadian geography. Questions have been raised regarding the centrality of English in conferences and professional meetings, and the dominance of English language periodicals in the determination of the standard of excellence for publication. The dominance of Anglo-Saxon geography is a resemblance of its power of leadership and influence to those who work preponderantly in that language. The issue of multilingualism has been tackled in the series of International Critical Geography conferences wherein it is viewed not just a matter of principle in a manner towards inclusivity, but an issue of practice. The language learning attained by people is a reflection of personal, intellectual and personal development.
