TEFL Insider Part 3

There is a rumour going round that the ever-increasing practice of EFL publishers based outside English-speaking countries (especially Greece and Spain) pretending to be more English than the Queen’s tea has reached silly new heights. 

One Greece-based English language publisher (although you wouldn’t know it from the address on the back of their books, which is the address of someone’s Granny’s shed in Buckinghamshire), long infamous for using fake names for its (Greek) writers has lost a potentially ground-breaking deal with Mario Rinvolucri (King of Humanistic Language Teaching) after asking him to write his next book as ‘Mark Richards’ because they ‘don’t want it looking like some Italian wrote it’.
