September 2000 - Issue No. #40

Tottori recently had a major earthquake, but luckily there was no damage here at my university. Thanks to all those who got in touch to see if I was still alive! Our fall 2000 newsletter features a college ESL course designed around the study of Anne Frank, an article from Korea on foreign language teachers and interracial marriage, and a section on critical thinking about which country really "won" the recent Olympic Games in Sydney. Also included is a report on this summer's FIPLV 2000 conference in Paris, global issue sessions at LIOJ's Summer Workshop, a list of global education reference books and a preview of global issue presentations at the upcoming JALT 2000 international conference in Shizuoka Nov. 3-5 - please come and attend! Good luck with your fall teaching!
