Linguistic Imperialism, Cultural Integrity, and EIL.
Modiano, Marko
ELT Journal, v55 n4 p339-46 Oct 2001
Argues that while linguistic imperialism is real and needs to be addressed, one way for the language instructor to come to terms with the cultural imposition of English language teaching is to define English as an international language. Suggests promoting "prestige varieties" positions the practitioner as purveyor of Anglo-American hegemony and perpetuates the negative impact that foreign language learning can have on the cultural integrity of the learner.
