|Title:||Is English a threat to Chinese language and culture?|
|Institution:||The Open University|
|Linguistic Field:||Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics|
|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.
