Abstract:

ELT education, as a commodity, takes many forms in countries all over theworld. This book questions how the benefits of international Englishlanguage education projects are distributed. The critical issues oflanguage rights and linguistic diversity are pivotal in the book'sexamination of domination and subordination in international languageeducation projects. The author's description of the role and teaching ofEnglish is based on her experience of working in ELT aid and developmentand fee-based projects, and through it she unmasks the interests andintentions of aid and fee-based language education projects. The two casestudies that form the basis of this book recount a version of ELT marketingand project implementation that will resonate with experiences of aidrecipients and university-led private sector fee-payers in many differentELT contexts.
