THE ENGLISH SPOKEN IN ENGLAND IS NOT THE SAME EVERYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY: FACT Every language allows different kinds of variations of its standard form, that is, the form of the language taught at school and used in the media. This way, one cannot say British English is homogeneous.

These variations can be generated by differences in geographical areas, style, registers or genres, just to mention a few possibilities. This means that varieties of a language can simply be regional variants of the standard form of the language, or a variation in the degree of formality. Just think of Brazil: do all Brazilians speak Portuguese exactly the same way? IN ENGLAND, PEOPLE FROM LONDON SPEAK BETTER ENGLISH THAN PEOPLE FROM YORKSHIRE: MYTH Some variations of the language may be associated with social groups that have more prestigeous. That doesnt mean that one variety is better than the other. They are just different! STANDARD ENGLISH IS THE ONLY CORRECT ENGLISH: MYTH There should not be such a concept of right or wrong varieties of English. As it was already mentioned, there are certain varieties that may be of higher prestige, which does not necessarily indicate that all the other varieties are wrong or inferior. There was a time when the Queens English was considered the reference for the colonies of the English empire. What one must understand is that the standard form, that is considered good English by some people, may be more privileged than the other forms, which should not be judged as the wrong variety. KNOWING THE STANDARD FORM OF ENGLISH IS AS INSTRUMENT FOR MOVING UP THE SOCIAL LADDER: MYTH Knowing the standard form is of no use if the person does not have access to basic needs, technology, or well-paid jobs. According to Marcos Bagno (1999, p. 69), a linguistic and professor at Universidade de Braslia, if knowing the standard form is a tool for having the best opportunities in life, language teachers would be the richest and most influential people in the country. Now is that true?
