A Concise Examination of the Artificial Battle between Native and Non-Native Speaker Teachers of English in Turkey
Celik, Servet
Online Submission, Kastamonu Education Journal v14 n2 p371-376 Oct 2006
This paper serves as a theoretical commentary on the debate regarding native and non-native speaker teachers of English as it draws from the discussions in the literature, as well as from personal experience. The author, a nonnative English teacher himself, points out the possible pros and cons of being a native and non-native speaker teacher of English, and emphasizes the need for these two groups of teachers to embrace each other and to work in a partnership. The custom-made cold war with extreme competition between these groups is criticized for the benefit of language teaching workplaces where success is inevitable. (Contains 1 footnote.)
