Winter 2001 - Issue No. #45

This winter newsletter, originally planned for December, is finally coming out in early spring. Apologies for the delay! This issue features articles on linguistic diversity, on teaching about world religions and on teaching for charity. Also included are a report on the 2001 Asian Youth Forum (AYF), which brought together students from 11 Asian countries, and comments from language teachers on September 11. This issue also contains an appeal to language teachers to see the 2002 World Cup soccer championships as a unique opportunity - a "teachable moment" - for promoting international understanding by (1) teaching students about Korea (and Japan) and (2) raising students' global awareness by teaching about the cultures, countries and peoples of the world soccer teams taking part.
