The role of English within developing countries is questioned through an outline using different prepositions to explain the different areas of language affecting development. History of English within developing countries where English was spoken by the colonizers as well as those countries that were not colonized by English speakers is offered. An emphasis is placed upon English within the immediate community versus the community as it stretches abroad, as well as English as the lingual medium for education, business, and everyday life, when looking at the imperialistic tendencies of English and how has it changed developing countries. Case studies from Chad and personal experiences with EFL in Haiti give background and evidence for the author’s findings.
