This chapter examines the pedagogical implications of the multilingual model and the lingua franca approach in English Language Teaching (ELT) in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. It attempts to answer the questions concerning the teaching of English in schools and who should teach it. The chapter suggests that English should not be used as a medium of instruction in primary schools and that the linguistic focus of primary schools in ASEAN should be on local languages, not English.

Keywords:   multilingual model, lingua franca, ELT, English language, ASEAN countries, language education
