Abstract

This paper is an attempt to understand and analyse the language learning experiences of a child from a socio-economically weaker section attending an urban low-fee-private (LFP) school. Children from marginalized communities are caught in the multi-layered Indian school system which often forces them to attend inferior quality English-medium LFPi schools. With socio-economic differences, the learners' cultural capital, experiences of language use and abilities also vary. This paper analyses how these variations are converted to oppression instead of resources for learning for the underprivileged children.
