I am a teacher of English as an additional language. Does anyone know of any online resources (reading or listening texts) in non-UK or non-US varieties of English that I could use in class?
You might find this great little website useful: www.elllo.org
It's full of listening texts (with transcripts/activities) from speakers around the world.
You can't actually browse the site by the nationality of the speaker, but the handy little flags tell you where they're from
This website offers a range of resources that stem from projects undertaken by practitioners in Nottingham. The resources seem focused on bringing a global and anti-racist perspective into the classroom but you may find them interesting.
You don't say if you are primary or secondary, but if you're secondary, this teachglobal also looks (both academically and aesthetically) rather good!
I hope you find something out there that suits you!
The speech accent archive might have some potential for familiarising your students with varieties of spoken English. There don't seem to be many 'ready made' activities online though - so you'll have to design your own tasks!
Forgot to mention the British Library Accents and Dialects of the UK website. All UK varieties of English (obviously) but lots of regional/ethnic group/age-related variety is represented here. If anyone ever thought that English is spoken in the same way all over the UK, this will show them that is isn't!
Here's a video that introduces the concept of World Englishes, gives some examples and presents a few interviews with students about their language learning experiences.
