Overview

A most important and influential development in Brazilian English language teaching (ELT) has been the establishment and growth of private, nonprofit, language teaching and learning organizations (LTOs). It is possible that LTOs can bring together privately funded and publicly available language education. As Brazil continues to play an important role as a world leader, English learners and LTOs will continue to be influential. This book examines how LTOs are affecting Brazil's ELT industry and international economy.
