EFL in Japan: Whose English Is It Anyway?
Beale, Jason
Babel, v37 n2 p26-28 Spr 2002
Summarizes the main criticisms aimed at English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) instruction in Japan. Each criticism is followed by a commentary that attempts to deconstruct the underlying cultural assumptions. Suggests that the frequent calls for the development of EFL from outside Japan need to respect the principles of cultural continuity. (Author/VWL)
