Abstract: 
English today is the language of global communication and has gradually developed into several varieties shaped by speakers from different lingua-cultural backgrounds. This contribution discusses action research applied in an English language classroom of Italian tertiary students engaged in Skype interactions with a group of Spanish peers. The aim is to explore the open question of the legitimation of a less prescriptive, but more pragmatic, pedagogical space where the teaching objective is constituted by the adoption of ELF-informed practices to foster learners’ ELF awareness and confidence as intercultural speakers. From a pedagogical angle, the paper encourages teachers to challenge the traditional World Englishes teaching paradigm through an ELF-aware approach.
