Abstract:

For believers in the power of English, language as aid can deliver thepromise of a brighter future; but in a neocolonial world of internationaldevelopment, a gulf exists between belief and reality. Rich with echoes ofan earlier colonial era, this book draws on the candid narratives of whitewomen teachers, and situates classroom practices within a broad reading ofthe West and the Rest. What happens when white Western men and women comein to rebuild former colonies in Asia? How do English language lessonstranslate, or disintegrate, in a radically different world? How is Englishteaching linked to ideas of progress? This book presents the paradoxes oflanguage aid in the twenty-first century in a way that will challenge yourviews of English and its power to improve the lives of people in thedeveloping world.
