Great article. I totally agree with you and think you raised some very interesting points. I run Blackhen Education, offering online English courses for English speaking children living abroad. One of our objectives is to give our students an understanding of their cultural identity through their English units. It is so important that they learn this alongside learning their reading & writing skills.
