Technical English has gradually become widespread in the last years, largely on account of a huge need to use English in the field of auto-mechanics. Learners in Latin America are increasingly seeking proficiency in the English language in specific domains of use to serve limited purposes. These learners retain a bilingual use of their native language for social and informal purposes. The native language is used for school and university subjects which reflect indigenous cultures and which are learned in the language of a country; examples of such subjects outside the field of science and technology are history, sociology, political science, and education. In countries where the native language is used as the medium of instruction for lectures in science, knowledge of English is crucial to gain access to the bulk of scientific material published in books, magazines, and journals. This trend toward special purpose language instruction is mainly focused to the instruction on the needs of the learner.
