Abstract: No nosso mundo global o inglês é utilizado em vários domínios e com muitos objectivos comunicativos entre pessoas de diferentes nacionalidades. Usado nos negócios, na ciência, com fins culturais, o inglês está em crescimento, tendo-se convertido numa língua global de comunicação entre falantes não-nativos de diferentes nações. Este facto constitui uma perspectiva completamente nova acerca do modo como a pessoas se relacionam com a língua a um nível internacional. Estudantes dos países europeus do denominado Circulo em Expansão (Kachru 1985), geralmente aprendem inglês como língua estrangeira. Todavia, tendo em mente o novo estatuto que o inglês vem desempenhando na Europa e no mundo, a sua função de língua internacional, usada como meio de comunicação entre os povos, cada vez mais os professores precisam de se preocupar em alertar os alunos para esta nova realidade, que podem encontrar durante a sua vida e a necessidade de se readaptarem a novas situações. Esta dissertação destaca como a expansão geográfica e funcional do Inglês mudou a nossa percepção do mundo nesta era de globalização e de como, e ao mesmo tempo, afectou a nossa relação com a língua. Nesta tese referem-se vários trabalhos que reflectem sobre esta situação que levanta um grande número de questões para o ensino do inglês, sublinhando a importância a atribuir ao factor inteligibilidade. Considerando estes factos, os alunos de uma turma de uma Escola Básica do 3 º ciclo em Portugal foram convidados a responder um questionário, no sentido de inferir uma perspectiva dos seus conhecimentos acerca da língua, bem como da sua exposição quotidiana à mesma e da sua apetência para aprender inglês, bem como da sua exposição quotidiana a esta língua. Uma vez que duas alunas se mostraram poucas esclarecidas sobre o novo papel do inglês como língua internacional elas foram ainda escolhidas para realizar uma actividade concebida para lhes aumentar o interesse na língua. Para se prepararem para esta tarefa as alunas executaram várias actividades de audição e leitura recorrendo a Ferramentas de Autor (Quandary e Audacity). Posteriormente, foi-lhes solicitado que usassem outras Ferramentas de Autor (Windows Live Movie Maker e Audacity) para gravarem um video que colocaram no YouTube. A partir desta rede de distribuição social, as alunas tomaram consciência de que a maioria das interacções linguísticas envolve cidadãos de várias nações que falam inglês com falantes não-nativos, uma vez que elas também puderam ler os comentários ao seu vídeo que vieram de diferentes partes do mundo.
Abstract: In our globalized world English is used in a great number of domains and for many communicative purposes among people from different nationalities. Used for business, scientific, cultural purposes English is growing to become a global language of communication among speakers of different nations who are non-native speakers of the language. This fact constitutes an entirely new perspective at the way people relate to it at an international level. Students from European countries, of the so-called Expanding Circle (Kachru 1985), usually learn English as a Foreign Language. However, living in a technological and globalized world demands for linguistic international interaction; as English has been playing this role, this fact may have a wide repercussion in its teaching. This dissertation describes the expansion and functions of English and how its spread has changed our perception of the world and implications it may bring for English language teaching. One of the issues addressed here is the question of intelligibility and the consequences it may have in language teaching perspective. Having the new status of English in mind, 3rd cycle students of a Escola Básica in Portugal were asked to answer a questionnaire, to get a perspective of their knowledge concerning the language, and tendencies to English learning and exposure. As only two students were not aware of the new roles of English as an international language, they were further exposed to an activity to broaden their interest in the language In order to prepare the students for this task, they performed a series of listening and reading activities by means of Authoring Tools (Quandary and Audacity). Students were then asked to use other Authoring Tools (Windows Live Movie Maker and Audacity) and post a resulting video at YouTube. From this social distribution network, the students became aware that most interactions are from several nations who speak English as non-native speakers, and they could also read the comments to their video that came from different parts of the world.
