My Language, My Culture: International Variations in Standards for English.
Stalker, James C.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n70 p7-16 Sum 1997
International students in American colleges may have learned an accepted international variety of English, rather than British or American forms. Errors may persist because students want to retain their variety of English and cultural identity. Teachers need to address these errors only if they interfere with communication in the academic context; student writing should be evaluated primarily for content. (MSE)
