English has become the world's international language, used for international
communication mostly among non-native speakers of other languages and 80
percent of all the English teachers around the world are nonnative Englishspeaking
(NNES) teachers (Canagarajah, 1999). Therefore, there is a growing
need to investigate the EIL (English as an International Language) movement
from non-native pre-service or in-service teachers' point of view. This study
examined future English teachers' attitudes towards teaching pronunciation
within an EIL perspective. Questionnaires and semi-structured interviews with
senior students revealed that native-speaker English is regarded as the correct
model in English language teaching (ELT). The implications of the findings on
the propagation of native speaker norms as the teaching model and the status of
ELF and its reflections on ELT in Turkey are discussed.
