Albert H.Marckwardt has made a distinction between ‘English as a foreign language’ and ‘English as a second language’. According to him, when English is “taught as a school subject or on an adult level solely for the purpose of giving the student a foreign language competence which he may use in one of several ways” then it is taught as a foreign language. But English becomes a second language when it is a language of instructions in schools and colleges and is used as “a lingua franca between speakers of widely diverse languages, as in India”.
