Welcome to Expacked (Issue #72)

May 20, 2010

Although we still have plenty of teaching related news this week,  everything has been a little overshadowed by other key events.

The ‘other’ events are, of course, confirmation that North Korea did torpedo the Cheonan (and NK are still denying it and threatening war), Buddha’s Birthday celebrations and the upcoming elections.

Before I forget, I will also throw in an update about the volatile situation in one of our favourite holiday destinations, Thailand.

In the Expacked intro last week, I mentioned about my trip to Taiwan and the high level of English we found there.  This week I came across a great write up from an Indian living in Seoul.  She  had some interesting insights into how Indian learn English and just how different it is from Korea’s approach to education.  Have a read of it below.

Here are the teaching related stories this week:

Feel free to comment on any of these stories and continue to share Expacked with your friends.  Enjoy the read and, of course, enjoy this week’s public holiday!!!!

Cheers,

Ken
