The Fifth Congress a Great Success!

Despite a typhoon and an earthquake which prevented some 20 presenters from reaching Taichung, Taiwan, the Congress was blessed with over 300 attendees, from some 20 countries. All were pleased with the range of presentations and opportunities for networking.

The 5th World Congress was graced with more than double the number of scholarship recipients due to the cooperation of the U.S. Department of State Regional English Language Offices in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines — in addition to those directly sponsored by the ERF. Scholars came from as far away as Mexico to the east and Iran and India to the west. Some of the digital handouts and PPTs are available at https://tinyurl.com/erwcdocs.

For those who missed it, the Sixth World Congress site will be Yogyakarta, Indonesia, on August 9-14, 2021. Watch these pages or our Facebook site for further details.

Students Start Using 2018 Vietnam Book Lottery Readers

A “Book Lottery” was conducted as part of the “2018 Vietnam Roadshow” featuring Marc Helgesen, Rob Waring, Paul Goldberg, Todd Beuckens and Tom Robb, at various locations last year. Two schools received 300 books each, a $1000 value, while the other six schools received 150 readers. Ms. Vuong Ho (Ho Thi  Xuan Vuong) in Ho Chi Minh City engineered the selection, purchase and shipment to each of the winning schools with the ERF paying all costs.
