December 1994 - Issue No. #17

This is our last newsletter for the year. In this issue, we've included a review of JALT global education chapter presentations in 1994, fall conference reports from Japan and Korea, articles on junk mail and intercultural understanding plus teaching ideas and resources related to two key dates this month: International AIDS Day (Dec. 1) and International Human Rights Day (Dec. 10). With this issue, we'd also like to wish you all a pleasant winter holiday and a Happy New Year and hope that the ideas and resources in this newsletter issue inspire you to move into 1995 with a renewed commitment to global education language teaching.
