Unpacking Myths about having Perfect English in a Globalised Community

Coupled with an explosion of internet access, social media platforms and massive shifts in global migration these have led to the spread of English as a tool for people to connect with. Yet there are many forms (not accents) of English that actually use different grammar and vocabulary. Countries such as the US, England, Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and Canada all have similarities yet their unique differences and linguistic structures. Drawing on my 20 years experience of teaching and leading schools in multilingual environments we are going to discuss and reflect on how English should not be considered just as a tool for reading, writing and speaking in perfect English. Learning English should be seen as a flexible tool enabling people to work, to learn and respectfully engage globally through critical, creative and collaborative thinking by being able to view and decode a myriad of forms in a digitally literate world.
