I don't know about the English language tests in the countries. In Norway, however there are. In upper grades, we have a certain amount of English idioms to explain. Some the teachers made a great effort to teach us spoken English instead of the sterile "Queens English". I guess there is a time and a place for everything, even the language. My English is not yet perfect. I can make a lot of spelling mistakes and tend to bind the words that are supposed to be separate. English grammar is still not perfect. Even so. Most people have no problem understanding me. I don't have problems understanding English/American/Irish/scottish/Australian people. This I contribute to a spechial teacher that really caught my interest towards the English language. The English language is a thrill to work with. Can be used in a multitude of forms and even I find it easier than my own native language (Norwegian) at the time of explaining certain things. I must say that this master of mine is also trying to teach me French. To his dismay, he could not. Or said from another point of view. I don't. lol English is a fabulous language. In the jargon of words and espechally the idioms to add the substance to it. A lot of teachers around the world should pay more attention to the words of slang and real spoken language. Of course, it is good to know the words and the proper grammar, but to know part of the real spoken language, added to the joy of the language. There is only one part of the world of "slang" English I like. F-Words. Greetings.
