HAPPY NEW YEAR

HAPPY NEW YEAR

A very Happy New Year to one and all from the Abax team! May 2014 bring more sweet than bitter. May it be a year of learning, of personal growth and of increased understanding. And may the shared endeavor of all of us in ELT, the teaching of English, help us find our way to a world of increased dialogue and greater peace.

Books Doing Good at JALT National

Books Doing Good at JALT National

ABAX and Language Solutions Inc. (with much assistance from NPO JALT and KOBILS, Kobe Bilingual School —a big thank you!) will once again have a Books Doing Good corner at the annual JALT conference. Be sure to stop by booth #13. This is the fifth time round for this. Last year we raised almost ¥100,000, which we donated to the charity, NPO-Lesa. NPO-Lesa uses this donation to help with English books and other items for children in Vietnam born and living with HIV. We are again working with NPO-Lesa in 2013. A big thank you to all of the teachers that have donated their used books. This charity project would not succeed without you. Don't forget, booth 13!
