Abstract:

ELT education, as a commodity, takes many forms in countries all over the
world. This book questions how the benefits of international English
language education projects are distributed. The critical issues of
language rights and linguistic diversity are pivotal in the book's
examination of domination and subordination in international language
education projects. The author's description of the role and teaching of
English is based on her experience of working in ELT aid and development
and fee-based projects, and through it she unmasks the interests and
intentions of aid and fee-based language education projects. The two case
studies that form the basis of this book recount a version of ELT marketing
and project implementation that will resonate with experiences of aid
recipients and university-led private sector fee-payers in many different
ELT contexts.
