ملخص

This chapter examines ways in which English has assisted in modernizing Oman and its smooth entry into the global community. It also discusses the role of English in the local arena as a means of shaping social and cultural spaces in Oman, including Omani culture manifestation and promotion around the world. The Omani culture is not only valuable to Oman, but is also important for the rest of the world. It is a part of the human heritage, reflecting the impact of different historical, economic and social events that have shaped and reshaped the world throughout history. Taking a look at how the two sides of the coin have been brought together will help us find middle ground where we can foster the unique identity of Oman while adapting to the accelerating changes in the globalized world.
