Teacher reflection ELI teachers



HyperRESEARCH.com "I think poety opens up the crucial relationship between language and culture.... Vocabulary changes its meaning according to its context."
ELI Management Why poetry? What poetry? Want to find out more? "The themes in good literature are about a shared human experience." Beyond language, it`s about being retrospective. Being able to look at these poems, a look at the themes...and take something away on a personal level. I say that as an ultimate goal of art in general. "It`s not about translating. It`s about interpreting. That skill is about using language." References
