I would like to announce that I will be speaking at this symposium in Xi'an, China on October 17th, 2004. The symposium is dedicated to the teaching and language acquisition of a very career-specific target group: doctors. I will be presenting a paper 'Changing the Paradigm for English Medical Language Teaching' in keeping with the theme and the curriculum model I have designed. The symposium is hosted by Xi'an Jiaotong University. If you are attending, please do come and introduce yourself! I'd love to meet the many people I have been corresponding with around the world.

Hello. Nice to meet you.

So long!

Hello, everyone:

Thank-you for your inquiring about this conference in Xi'an, China in 2004. It was a great event. You can read my article: Changing the Paradigm for Medical English Language Teaching published on-line at http://www.usingenglish.com/articles/medical-english-language-teaching.html . Or, just type in the title and you'll find it.

Since 2004, I had the pleasure to speak again in China. I attended the 2006 International Symposium on Medical English in Beijing in July. It was fantastic. I was sorry to see that once again, at this international gathering, there were only about 4 of us who were native-English speakers. I really would like to encourage everyone to get involved. Next one: 2008, Shanghai, I believe.
