    Abstract

    Today, the expansion of English education between non-native speakers with different language backgrounds requires insight into the problems encountered in the multicultural classroom and the consequences of English-medium instruction for local students as well as students of other nationalities. As English becomes the language of communication it may cause on the one hand an increase in lecturers'workload and adversely affect their lecturing behaviour and on the other hand it may affect students' workload and study behaviour and workload, resulting in a loss of academic achievements (Jochems et.all 1994). Both English speaking communities as well as other European Communities are aware of the necessity for research into the ever increasing activities in the area of internationalisation. In this booklet you will find 4 qualitative case studies, describing the nature of effective lecturing behaviour in English-medium instruction at TU- Delft.
