Cook (2002) also strongly advocates the term ‘user’ and goes one step further by proposing the substitution of ‘L2 user’ for ‘L2 learner’, pointedly claiming that many ‘L2 users’ can no longer be considered perennial learners of the language, as they have full right to be considered legitimate users of an L2 variety of the language. Finally, this is in line with current discussions on the role of English as a Lingua Franca at international levels, and the need for all users of English to interact in a mutually intelligible way, thus rendering the labelling of ‘native’ and ‘non-native’ useless, and bringing a new dimension of proficiency at the international level, as expressed in Modiano’s (1999) reformulation of Kachru’s (1981) concentric circles.
