||Introduction to Lov-e.com's Global Issues Links
Why learn about the troubles of the world?
Why talk about it in English?
Hopefully this course will help answer these and other questions.
These notes have been organized around the book You, Me and the World a course book in communicative English for global citizenship by David Peaty.
This internet course on global issues is designed to be independent of the text or work in conjuction with it, the choice is yours.
Effective use of the internet, news media, and reading will provide a great deal of information on world affairs. Participation in community volunteer activities and discussion groups can also help broaden our perspective.
The key is applying this new global awareness immediately in conversation. By articulating our feelings we may move to a more positive activism. Once engaged, our life and language will expand to meet our new horizon. The world's issues will become our own, as we become part of the greater global family.
