On PAC3 at JALT2001 Conference Proceedings

A Language Odyssey

The odyssey was seven years in the planning. It opened to the thunder of Japanese taiko drums and a brass orchestra, hosted almost 600 workshops, presentations, events, parties, and plenaries, and attracted close to 2001 attendees from all over the world--including, for the first time, new friends from the Russian Far East, and a large contingent of young people for the Asian Youth Forum.

Other firsts included the hugely successful 'JALT Junior'--a conference-in-a-conference for teachers of young children. It was the first JALT conference in Kyushu, and it was our first joint venture with SIETAR and JPacSLRF

PAC3 at JALT2001 was a success beyond everyone's expectations. Under beautiful autumn skies we gathered for four days on a journey to share ideas, learn, network, and renew acquaintances.

Almost one year later, our odyssey finally ends with the creation of this conference proceedings. Like everything about the conference, it too has exceeded our hopes... 110 articles by 147 writers, filling 935 pages with material on every aspect of language teaching and learning. Our thanks go to all the writers who poured their ideas and energy into this volume of work, creating a mammoth record that stands as a fitting memorial to the event.

The editors would like to offer a special thanks to Gene van Troyer who guided the proceedings through the review and selection process before personal circumstances led to his resignation.

With that, we'll leave you to continue your explorations of this volume, and hope you find much of interest on your own language odyssey...
