Paper Title
Reorienting the Postcolonial Educational Practices: Perspectives and Possibilities

The paper has reviewed the western agenda behind teaching English language and culture into the colonized countries, and demonstrated the result in the form of self-denigration and neocolonialism consequent upon adopting them. It has also demonstrated how the postcolonial writers have been working hard to regain their lost identity, dignity, language, history and cultural heritage by using national/postcolonial theories and perspectives. Demonstrating the colonistís objective to teaching English and the consequent cultural implications in the postcolonial societies, the article has argued for the paradigm shift in the teaching practice to improve the educational practice in the postcolonial societies and enhance the human condition of life.
