This school year is getting off to a great start. One of the reasons is that I have a new friend, Dr. Backil Sung. He is a medical doctor and a Ph.D. He has joined my other good friend, Dr. Richard Brown, in the Natural Sciences Department.
Dr. Sung has a special interest, and that is helping grow the English Language Institute with students. He is Korean and has many contacts in that country, where there is a great passion for English language study.
This is a photo of us working on the ELI Language Lab, which had been defunct for about 5 years. Once Dr. Sung came around, miraculously, the lab began working again! Hallelujah! Now we are trying to work the bugs out so that this machine can once again help students learn language.
