Communicative Competence in the Plural and the Teaching of English in Non-native Contexts.
Berns, Margie
Language Sciences, v12 n2-3 p209-19 1990
Describes the nature of competence in English and illustrates why and how a pluralistic model of communicative competence should and can be applied in addressing three major pedagogical issues in nonnative contexts: (1) the language model strived for, (2) intelligibility, and (3) the particular competence learners are to develop.
