Academic Paper


Title: Is English a threat to Chinese language and culture?
Author: Lin Pan
Author: Philip Seargeant
Institution: The Open University
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: In an article published in English Today in 2005, Niu and Woolf contend that:

EFL is a modern day Trojan horse filled with EFL teachers/soldiers or missionaries, armed with English words rather than bullets, intent upon re-colonizing the world to remake it in the image of Western democracy. China has brought the Trojan Horse within its gates and the army of EFL teachers is hard at work Westernizing China.
