    Teaching of Standard English in Primary and Secondary


    I am currently writing my dissertation concerning the teaching strategies of how to teach Standard Spoken English. (I do not believe my grammar was correct then!!)

    Could anyone please help by offering to me their own teaching strategies, and much more importantly, how they feel about teaching Standard Spoken English explicitly in the classroom.

    Thank you.

    As I teach exam courses, most of the language is geared towards Standard English,spoken and written, because this is required by desired outcomes.
    However, given that I work in London, there is also a need to cover the language that people will hear in their daily lives, which might be of less importance in a non-English speaking setting.
