Abstract

The modern world involves frequent use of the internet for, amongst other things, leisure, work, and purchasing goods and services. Such activities frequently involve the use of English both through interaction with other web users and through exposure to English-language media and this is, to a great extent, true for non-native English speakers just as it is for natives. So it is for many young people around the world that English, which in the past may have been an abstract school subject like geography or history, has become a language that they actually use in leisure and communication.
