TEFL tourism.

Book cover for TEFL tourism.


Essentially a combination of the notions of tourism and English language teaching, TEFL tourism is introduced in this book as a micro-niche tourism form designed to satisfy the demands for English language teachers around the globe. By assessing the commodification of TEFL and demonstrating parallels between TEFL tourism and other alternative tourism types, such as volunteer tourism, a number of cautionary approaches are advised in order to facilitate appropriate sustainable management of the TEFL tourism industry. The TEFL tourist is also examined, presenting a relevant typology that can be used to enhance understanding of who the tourists are and their motivations and experiences. The book has 8 chapters and a subject index.
