    I loved your description of former students . . . and former you as teacher. Recently I corresponded with a student of mine from 1990 (that’s right) and thanked her for tolerating a rookie.

    The two poems reflect my feelings and experience as a teacher of ESL in schools and colleges.It is the need of the hour in India,where English is taught as a second language,to teach it as a language in use,not for rote answers and tedious writing.In the tussle between scoring for exams and learning for expression,sadly,the former gets precedence.Its some consolation that in the USA too,the same situation exists.This gives hope of a global brainstorming into syllabus design,method,technique and assessment issues.
