Presentation Description

Traditionally, international students learn English as a Second Language in a classroom "equipped" with an instructor (and a blackboard) or, if they are lucky, impersonally in a lab with a line of, hopefully, updated computer programs and access to the internet. However, it is learning outsde the confines of the classroom (outside the box) that proves equally beneficial in acquiring higher level of mastery of the language. This presentation is designed to share the experiences, proving the benefits of creating a professional student newsletter. The example is "hello!", Savannah College of Art and Design ESL Department's official newsletter, published quarterly in "District" (The Student Voice of SCAD).
