English learners — if you want to focus on British English, dive

into Shakespeare. If you want to focus on American English, dive into Mark Twain!

I may be biased, as an American & a lifelong fan of Mark Twain. He was my favorite author growing up, and I look forward to rereading his stories after all these years!

    @جُمان We reference their works in our daily language, although not everyone realizes it. If you read their works, you will learn a massive amount of English culture and start noticing references to and from them in conversation.

    I'd do neither unless you want to use language nobody has used for the last 100 years+..

    @Marvin it’s for the cultural relevance, not the linguistic usage. I do make the presumption the learner has the intelligence to know when they’re studying important literature and when they’re actively progressing their target language.

    @Josh Anderson you'd assume that, but unfortunately that's generally not the case. If you're talking to students in English speaking countries who are native English speakers, they know what kind of language is currently used and what isn't. But you're not talking to those kind of people. You're talking to people who are English learners and who quite possibly have no practical English knowledge. If you look at some of the vocabulary lists Chinese students get, they're full of words that you've probably never heard/have used, because of exactly that reason.

    @Marvin sounds like their English curriculum is in need of revamped resources & strategy. Hopefully the folks on this app can navigate themselves a bit more intuitively than that!
