On November 6 2003 we are holding the annual World's Largest Lesson. We are writing to invite you to be part of our attempt to get as many teachers and students taking the same English-To-Go Instant Lesson on the same day.

This year we are working together with Adopt-A-Minefield and we have the support their patrons Paul McCartney and Heather Mills McCartney to get as many people involved as possible. To help encourage participation the landmine lesson is available at five language levels to cater for students with varying abilities and skill levels.

Information regarding this event will only be sent to people who register their intention to take part. To register please click here.

Please help spread the word by asking your fellow teachers and students to get involved.

Quote of the week:
"The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent tolerance; to a friend your heart; to your child a good example; to a father deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself respect; and to all men charity." - Frances Balfour.
