Formatted abstract
Given that this journal is targeted specifically at English language teachers in Brunei, many of whom like myself, are expatriates working for CfBT (Centre for British Teachers), I think it is important that we account for the particular set of cultural, economic and political circumstances that has led to our involvement in this country.

For the purposes of this article, I will highlight some of the major themes of Critical TESOL and relate these back to a Brunei context.
Keyword Critical TESOL
Linguistic imperialism
Bruneian English
Post-colonialism
Critical pedagogy
English learner attitudes
Linguistic capital
Q-Index Code C1
