Why NNESTS? ,

In the second book in the Legacy Series, Erzsebet Bekes & Marcela Carrasco re-examine the NEST vs NNEST debate and argue that a change in perception is long overdue. To what extent do non-native speakers have other skills that compensate for the less-than-complete language proficiency that is often associated with them? Is the ELT industry ready to leave the native-non-native divide behind and champion equitable employment policies and fair treatment for all?

About the Author

Erzsébet Békés is a Hungarian English teacher with more than 40 years of ELT experience. As a volunteer, she taught English to North African migrants in Crete, set up Language Improvement Centres in Ethiopia, spent six months teaching English for Tourism to members of an indigenous tribe in the Amazonian jungle and gave crash courses in Survival English to nomadic ‘sea gypsies’ while visiting Borneo. Based in Ecuador and working as a teacher trainer, she is a fully competent and proud non-native speaker teacher of English.

Marcela Carrasco has been teaching English for over 30 years. Born in Cuenca, Ecuador, brought up in Tehran, Iran, then educated in the United States, Marcela spent her formative years in cultures at odds with each other. As the owner and director of a hugely successful language school in Cuenca, she has lived and breathed multiculturalism. As a bilingual teacher of English and Spanish, her identity is neither – she is one of the world’s new global citizens.
