Abstract

English has been used for many years as the medium of instruction for overseas students at Israeli universities (Gonen, 2008). Recently, however, English-medium instruction (EMI) has become much more common, encompassing local students as well as those from abroad, at universities and academic colleges. This current turn towards English is linked, as it is in many other contexts, to on-going globalization, in which knowledge of English, the world’s current lingua franca, is believed to assist in the attainment of cultural and social capital and economic benefits.
