In British HE there is increasingly a new new set of pedagogical challenges coming to the forefront: developing English for Academic Purposes with undergraduate students who are conversant with English-speaking cultural contexts and use everyday and colloquial English with ease, but seem far less familiar with the ethos and language practices of academic communities. These students are usually British-born 'home' students who have been educated within the British education system; many are also multilingual in that they experience live in heritage languages as well as English. This chapter raises this as both a theoretical issue and a teaching issue.
