Overview

This newest volume in the ELT in Context series by Nicole Takeda is about teaching English at a nongovernmental organization (NGO) in Cambodia and is unique in its details and documentation. It presents firsthand accounts of the considerable challenges and difficulties facing English language teachers working with learners in poverty, on between US$1 and US$2 per day. In spite of extremely resource-poor environments, Takeda and her coworkers, through their creation of the Bayon English Academy, have created a haven of educational hope and possiiblities for students from the lowest income families.
