Learning English focuses on young children's acquisition of spoken and written English in monolingual and bilingual contexts and explores the debates surrounding English in schools and colleges, and the often controversial nature of the English curriculum in different parts of the world.
English is learned in most parts of the world, both through use in the home and community, and as a major language of education. Learning English represents just some of this diversity.
