Oh, if only English teachers had been like that in my day! I do not know what happens now, but 'correct English' was so stressed that, in York, "Happen I will!" would have been corrected crossly to "Perhaps, child, perhaps you will!" And that is just one example of the "Kill all dialect as soon as possible!" policy! If it is still like that, it is no wonder that those educated in English are fixated on perfect answers! I hope, now the BBC has local accents on air, those days of trying for 'perfect BBC English' are over!
