- I would like to begin on a personal note. Since 1958, for a span of 24 years, with some interruptions, I have been deeply involved in English language education in Korea. I started as an in~tructor in the English department of Dong.A University in Pusan in 1958, and later moved to Seoul where as a Fulbright grantee I lectured at Seoul National University (College of Education), at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies, at Sunkyunkwan University, and at various other places for nearly a decade. For a number of. years, also, I represented the Fulbright Commission at conferences, seminars, workshops, - and training institutes in virtually every area of Korea. During this time I formed a lot of strong attachments and friendships in the Korean academic community. I have now returned to Korea after a six-year absence, and I know many of my former colleagues are wondering why I am teaching at an undistinguished high school in a provincial Korean city.
