'New Finding Out' Release

CB1.jpg World-renowned author, David Paul has recently released a refined and updated version of the popular 'Finding Out' series which was designed for elementary school children. The original 'Finding Out' was developed and refined with a lot of feedback from teachers over a ten-year period before it was published. It quickly became a bestseller and has remained so for fifteen years. During this fifteen-year period, many schools and teachers have suggested additions and improvements, and 'New Finding Out' (Macmillan) is the culmination of this feedback. The core elements of the original 'Finding Out' have been kept. 'New Finding Out' remains child centered, with the children being led towards a succession of achievable language targets that are not 'taught' but discovered in games, puzzles and other fun activities.

David Paul founded 'David English House' in an apartment in Hiroshima in 1982 and has built it up into one of the most respected schools in East Asia. For many years his focus has been on providing professional support for English teachers. He founded ETJ (English Teachers in Japan), trains teachers throughout East Asia, has introduced reputable distance learning courses to the region. Some of the books he has written include: 'Finding Out' and 'New Finding Out', 'Communicate'. 'Communication Strategies', 'Teaching English to Children in Asia’ (There are now Japanese, Korean and Chinese translations of this book) and 'Songs and Games for Children'. All of these books are available at:

David Paul will be conducting 'New Finding Out' Workshops - 'A child-centered approach for Japanese children' in June/July 2006.
