I found this article while looking for something completely different. It’s fascinating to read about the president’s vision for the program, but, jeez, talk about pressure.
Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, who speaks English, Russian, French, and Ukrainian in addition to Georgian, recently pledged that all 597,800 Georgian public schoolchildren will speak English as their second language by 2014…. never one to downplay an idea that casts Georgia as open to the world, Saakashvili has called the campaign “the greatest contribution we will make to the future development of our country. “ And the “largest breakthrough…in the entire post-Soviet space.”
I am a part of making sure that happens! Or at least gets underway. I am excited to be a part of such a big vision and will certainly do my best. Boy, that sounds corny. Whatever.
Go read the article to understand a bit more about Georgia and my program!
Also probably a good idea to remember that my blog is public and news agencies could potentially mine it for dirt on the program. Something to keep in mind. They would have to ask my permission before publishing anything from it though, right?
