Workplace English in Indonesia

Setiawan, Dedy (2014) Workplace English in Indonesia. PhD thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

English has become the most important language in the World, and at the same time become the most important foreign language in Indonesia. It is used in many aspects of life and used as a communication tool or lingua franca among people of non-English speaking countries. Indonesian workplace culture is also developing consistent with the international changes resulting from globalisation and the impact of the information era. While workplace research has been conducted by scholars in many countries around the globe, such research is under-developed in Indonesia. As a consequence, research concerned with how English is used in Indonesian workplaces is virtually unknown; this research seeks to change that situation.
