  1. Reading Circle has been added to this year's curriculum in the School of Foreign Languages, where students choose a novel and discuss the main idea, the plot and the characters in the classroom as groups of four or five. The roles of group members are as follows : Discussion Leader, Word Master, Summarizer, Passage Master and Culture Connector. A very useful activity for EFL students to connect with the culture and literature of the target language.
  2. Hi Duke,

    Just saying a big hello from the UK - still working hard and trying to find enough free time to catch up with everyone.

  6. I agree with Kathy. It seems like the reason for some to want a rule change is to be able to insult each other a bit more freely, as if the existing name calling/labelling game was not repulsive enough. If the rule is changed, surely, the ones benefiting from it will be those who dominate the Forum by trying to ram their world views down our throats in each of the posts they make or those who hang around the Forum 24/7 like a police patrol car only to jump in every thread regardless of the subject and those who use bullying people online as a means of self-satisfaction.

  9. Dear Tech Support, Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 , and then installed undesirable programs such as NBA 5.0 , NFL 3.0 and Golf Clubs 4.1 . Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these proble
  10. Here's an idea for a literature or a foreign languages class. I divide the class into groups of four or five, give each group a novel to study and also give them at least two weeks to prepare. Each member of the group has a part in the presentation. One tells the class about the setting, the others about the plot, characters, main idea, etc. In the second part of the presentation, the group acts out a scene from the novel. When it's finished, the viewers ask questions and/or make comments about the group's performance. It's a good activity to improve speaking and listening skills. Last we
  11. Most higher education students are not as indifferent to politics as we think. They might seem to be more interested in other areas such as online games, shopping, chatting and relationships. However, from my own experiences I can say that the majority of them is following what has been going on in the world and discussing politics both in class and outside the campus. Therefore I'm optimistic about the new generation. Aren't we doing the same thing now (criticising the youth for being reckless) that our parents once did? Have we become indifferent individuals? All of these young people ha
