Abstract

This paper critically explores the effect of volunteer tourism, financial aid and English language teaching on developing countries. In recent years, there has been a sharp increase in the number of tourists taking on volunteer placements in developing countries and these are often linked with the teaching of English as an additional language. This paper provides an overview of how these practices are an extension of neo-colonial ideology and evaluates how successful they are at assisting developing countries out of poverty.
