I had a super time at the International TESOL Conference in Philadelphia March 29-31. Where else can you have conversations in the space of a two days with ESL/EFL teachers from Chile, Venezuela, Mexico, Madagascar, Morocco, Syria, Japan, India, China, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Khazakstan, Romania, and Burkina Faso? (I didn't know such a country even existed, much less had EFL teachers. It's in Africa, squished between Cote d'ivoire, Ghana, Benin, Niger, and Mali.) What an opportunity to find out a teacher's viewpoint of what is happening around the world instead of hearing it slanted through the news media. I just thirsted for the opportunity of knowing others and getting some feedback about their situations, cultures, problems, and what is going on.

We get many letters with kind words of appreciation from our readers and teachers. THANK YOU! To get specific feedback for planning purposes, this month, we sent out questionnaires with the April issue of Easy English NEWS. I hope you will let us know how we're doing and if anything is missing that would help you in your classroom. You can mail or fax that back to us. If you didn't get a questionnaire, you can find it posted at the website. Click link near bottom of email.

Whether it was because we moved three times, my mother had to go to work, and my father was buried overseas, and I was confused, or I was just a slow learner, I don't know. I do remember a great deal of anxiety in first grade, not knowing the other students, not passing inspection (in those days, teachers did a daily health and cleanliness inspection with stars for those who passed), having no idea what I could do about my uncombed hair, my missing handkerchief and my often dirty fingernails.
