English Teaching and Evangelical Mission : The Case of Lighthouse School Paperback / softback
Part of the Critical Language and Literacy Studies series
Debates about the place of mission work in English Language Teaching continue to rage, and yet full-length studies of what really happens at the intersection of ELT and evangelical Christianity are rare.
In this book, Johnston conducts a detailed ethnography of an evangelical language school in Poland, looking at its Bible-based curriculum, and analyzing interaction in classes for adults.
He also explores the idea of `relationship' in the context of the school and its mission activity, and more broadly the cultural encounter between North American evangelicalism and Polish Catholicism.
The book comprises an in-depth examination of a key issue facing TEFL in the 21st century, and will be of interest to all practitioners and scholars in the field, whatever their position on this topic.
