Abstract [en]

This paper focuses on the societal presence of English in Europe, as it occurs beyond the school and educational institutional settings.  Whilst English is increasingly selected as a first foreign language taught in primary and secondary schools in Europe today, it is interesting to note the varied range of competency levels that are achieved by the age of 16+. Whilst some of this variety may be attributable to the quality or techniques of teaching, it seems possible that other societal factors may also have a significant impact. Some reasons for this are explored in this paper.
