Nowadays, the English language is taught in primary schools, secondary schools, high schools and in universities. Moreover, it is also taught in some nursery schools. But the level of the English language is different in every school. A person who teaches English in an international context must have some skills. These skills can be listed as follows: competence in communication and linguistic knowledge. The linguistic skill can be used in all areas of language teaching and it is also an indispensable factor in teaching a language as an international language.

The views of language specialists on teaching the English language as an international language, comments which were received after reading these views, the definition of global English, intercultural communication and the information on teaching English in the English-medium programmes in different countries have been told.
