Western Names in the Classroom: an Issue for the ESL Profession

TESOL in Context
Volume 11 Issue 1 (Aug 2001)

Abstract: In this article, Rachel Burke is concerned with a tendency towards use of English names, particularly but not exclusively in ESL classes, whether adopted of their own volition by new arrivals or assigned by the class teacher In the latter case, she reflects on what removal of someone's most exclusive badge of identity says about our commitment to cultural diversity. Rather, she seeks the positives in using a student's given name(s).
