    The central aim of English teaching is at one level very straightforward and uncontroversial. Atits simplest, the purpose of English as a subject is ‘to develop pupils’ abilities to use language effectively’. However, below the surface of that apparently incontestable and transparent statement lie all sorts of conflicting opinions, ideologies, methodologies and philosophies. Whatprecisely is meant by the various terms within the statement? For example, it is only relatively recently that English has included speaking and listening as an important aspect of what countsas ‘using language’. The inclusion of reading has been less controversial but there has been nosimilar agreement over what should be read, or indeed what exactly is involved in the processof reading.
