    When teaching English it could be helpful to conduct a needs analysis on the students. This will give an idea of their goals and need for speaking English. Depending on what these are & the level of English they require, some flexibility could be adopted in the adherence to ‘rules’ & the correction of grammar. If the students’ meaning can be clearly understood & they can communicate then this may be enough for them to function in whatever world they inhabit. Living in a multi-cultural society means that we have many opportunities to listen to & grasp the meaning of English spoken in a variety of accents & adaptations of grammar. It’s part of the dynamism of language. Problems may arise when writing English & a certain formality is required. I’m not sure how much the rules can be bent then.
