    I teach predominantly exam courses without a literature element and, as a result,don't use literary texts in the classroom at all,I'm afraid.

    Last May a Chinese English professor presented a conference paper extolling the virtues of using Shakespear to teach English.

    In the UK there is an obssession with exams and teaching language held to be directly related to people's daily and professional lives. Literary language has been sidelined. Sad, really.
