Abstract
That the EO question, at times, has been framed in “all or nothing” views, has appeared to take away from a common sense approach. There may be a more middle ground area, at least as a point of departure towards meeting the requirements of the English language teaching curriculum. This article considered the application of English only as was stipulated by the Korean Education Ministries 7th curriculum which came into force in 2000. The theme has wider application than just Korea, and extends to the Asian classroom.
