English - A Changing Medium for Education, Paperback / softback Book

English - A Changing Medium for Education Paperback / softback

Edited by Constant Leung, Brian V. Street

Part of the New Perspectives on Language and Education series


In this volume a range of authors from different international contexts argue that the notion of communicative competence in English, hitherto largely referenced to metropolitan native-speaker norms, has to be expanded to take account of diverse contexts of use for a variety of purposes.

It also discusses the popular belief that language and literacy should simply be regarded as a technical 'skill' which confers universal benefits and that it should be replaced with a social practice view that recognises situated variations and diversity.

This volume, we believe, provides a reference point for extended research and practice in these areas that will be of interest to wide range of people engaged in language and literacy education.
