GLOBAL ISSUES IN LANGUAGE
EDUCATION NEWSLETTER
April 2007 - Issue No. #64

Here, finally, is our GILE newsletter for winter 2006! Apologies to everyone for making you wait for this to appear. Our special theme this issue is "Esperanto" with teaching ideas, information and a feature article by JALT member Alain Lauffenburger. Other articles focus on (1) the United Nations Decade for Sustainable Development and its implications for language teachers; (2) a description of a new teacher-designed EFL textbook on Gender Issues, and (3) current research findings about how language learning can contribute to intercultural understanding. Also included are reports on recent activities in language teaching organizations, a list of global issue calendars for the year 2007, and lots of global education news, events and information. Have a great spring break!
