Linguistic Imperialism and Foreign Language Teaching

    Ali Isik


This paper unfolds into two parts: The first part presents arguments against linguistic imperialism. The relationship between the center countries and the periphery countries is examined by giving specific examples from Turkey. The center countries are namely the USA and England. They produce both language materials and language teaching methodology. The periphery countries are those countries that are dependent on the center countries with respect to materials and methodology. The second part of the paper discusses some proposals to reduce the detrimental influence of linguistic imperialism on language education.

Keywords: foreign language teaching, linguistic imperialism, materials adaptation and development
