The Marxist TEFL Group is an alternative campaigning current within the language teaching industry. It is not an academic site. Our ideas are rooted in the day to day experiences of ordinary teachers and language learners. We believe that learning languages is a positive and creative human enterprise but we also recognise how this activity is distorted under capitalism and how much extra pressure and burden is placed on people to learn a foreign lanuage despite other competing needs. We reject the notion of English as a world lingua franca because only the peoples of a truly international world, not one based on the unequal competition between nations, can make such a decision. We hope you enjoy the articles and discussions on this site.
