Abstract :Numerous studies have investigated non-native speakers' attitudes toward the nativeness paradigm, with the results showing a strong favoritism toward a standard variety of English found in the United Kingdom and North America. The data used in previous research was collected mostly from ESL learners and ESL teachers; few studies have explored pre-service teachers' language attitudes in regions where English is taught as a foreign language. On the assumption that the beliefs and attitudes held by pre-service teachers will influence the relationship between themselves and the target language as well as their potential students' view of English language in the international community, the current study examines Japanese pre-service teachers' beliefs concerning the status and value of English as an international language (ElL) as well as their views on native speaker norms.
