3.8 Reflect and Discuss

In this unit, we asked you to think, amongst other things, about:

    • ● what ‘proficiency’ means, given that learners inevitably construct their own English;
      ● to what extent proficiency only comes with the use of English in ‘non-conforming’ ways;
      ● the contexts in which your students encounter and use English outside the classroom, and how you might build on these English experiences in classroom learning activities;
      ● the contexts in which your students learn English inside (and outside?) the classroom, and how these affect the kinds of Englishes learned
