Abstract
In this paper I would like to focus on the Asian context of ELT. More specifically, I’d like to argue that some of the so-called “universal” aspects in ELT are not compatible with the Asian context, for linguistic but also cultural and historical reasons. The purpose of this article is to draw attention to such varying aspects in Asia and investigate as to why they vary from the universal standards. I believe such an investigation will lead to a better understanding of the discipline specifically in relation to the Asian setting.
