This chapter introduces the conceptual frameworks we adopt in this book project: English as an International Language (EIL) and what it means by the pedagogy of English as an International Language. Then it discusses why it is important to have further discussions and reflections on the pedagogy of EIL. This will be followed by a review of recent literature on teaching EIL and a highlight of what have been over-discussed and/or under-researched - which are the gaps that this edited volume aims to address. Thereafter, it explains how the edited volume is structured and how each chapter addresses the gaps.
