Title: ‘Bogged down’ ELT in Bangladesh: Problems and policy
Author: Maksud Ali
Author: Anna L. Walker
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: Hamid & Baldauf's (2008) labeling of the term ‘bogged down’ within the Bangladeshi ELT context and their prediction about the outcome of the English Language Teaching Improvement Project (ELTIP) appear to be true. While Hamid & Baldauf (2008) endeavour to present the poor ELT reality of rural Bangladesh, the current paper aims to explore the problems that make ELT ‘bogged down’ in Bangladesh.
