Abstract

"The emergence of the varieties of English known as the World Englishes (WEs) including the Asian Englishes has brought impact on English communication. Within the varieties, English is spoken with different accents, stress, speed, and bodily gestures by the users who are not the native speakers of English. Consequently, problems in communication between the speakers and hearers may arise. This issue needs to be taken into account by teachers as the practitioners in English Language Teaching (ELT) with regard to the implication of the WEs on the teaching of English in schools. In fact, English materials used in schools have not accommodated the WEs yet. Even there is still controversy whether it is essential or not to introduce the WEs in the classrooms. This paper discusses the investigation on the perceived English materials need of undergraduate students in Banjarmasin and Malang regarding the Wes and AEs. The findings of the needs analysis is hopefully fruitful for practitioners in modifying English materials that prepare school graduates to communicate with the users of English both in Asia and global context. Keywords: need analysis, World Englishes, ELT materials"
