The study examined the suitability of a pluricentric model of ELT, which accommodates local varieties of English, for primary education in Indonesia. The majority of participants in the study strongly supported the adoption of a pluricentric model of English language instruction. However, whether their positive attitudes would affect ELT pedagogy was not clear, since there were many complex issues impacting on the adoption of this approach in Indonesia.
