I think this discussion is about due.
On the one hand we have Toe Save and his adventure English idea. On the other we have my very progressive high school asking me to develop some kind of ‘scouting’ program that includes outdoor activities. Then we have numerous people around the island promoting various adventure activities, with the tourism authority rubbing their hands in glee. Mostly it’s foreigners doing these things, and language learning (activation) is part of the equation, hence this topic appearing in this forum.
Is the time right for Taiwan to embrace the benefits of getting out there, facing your fears, finding yourself, being socially and environmentally responsible, basically becoming a good, confident and wholesome person?
Is anybody else involved with this sort of stuff and wants to share ideas?
