What are the practical approaches to "English Divide," which is becoming a serious social problem occurred in many countries?
Education has been used for those from low-income family to achieve a better social status. Like that, in many countries who use English as a second language, English has been used as a tool to upgrade social status. However, the quality and quantity of opportunity of learning English has been decided by family's economic status. Children's English proficiency acquired by their parents' economic help has decided their job position. So the vicious cycle keeps going on. How could we deal with the problem? I want to learn from you specifically in terms of school, company, and civic group.
