This study investigated the attitudes pre-service English teachers—English majors, students minoring in English, graduate students, and interns—have towards English as a lingua franca. Results showed differences concerning the native speaker of English as a role model and the importance of exposure to a variety of Englishes. Interns and English majors expressed higher expectations for attaining native-like proficiency; English minors showed less reliance on a native-speaker model. To help future educators develop greater awareness of the role of English in today's world, teacher preparation programs in settings where English is a foreign language should reflect a global Englishes perspective.
