Title: English - A Changing Medium for Education
Edited By: Constant Leung
Brian V. Street
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847697707
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

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.
