Gone Polish

Gone Polish

News Poland
In from Delta Democrat Times - Greenville, MS

It's one thing to know the English language, quite another to speak it in conversation.

Toward that end, 20 students from Northwest Mississippi Community College became teachers - in Poland. The young men and women are members of the Senatobia institution's Baptist Student Union, which spent nine days in March in the city of Wroclaw.

I am sure this was a very educational experience for everyone involved including the Polish students learning English. It would be good for more school systems to get involved in such activities. Although I don't know how much the students could get out of the 9 days that they were here aside from a brief taste of Poland.

I think colleges and universities would be in a better position to send students to teach briefly in Poland as the high school student are a bit underqualified to do anything other than talk to the people. I think it makes EFL teaching seem easier than it is and more of a job anyone can do with no extra training.
