Several articles of interest to teachers of English as a second language (ESL) are included. In "Syllabus Design and the Adult Beginner," Keith Johnson discusses the various choices the course organizer must make to make a syllabus communicative. Among the ideas for "Developing Writing Skills" offered by Patricia A. Denham are fully controlled exercises, structurally determined exercises, model based writing, cue based writing, and topic based writing. Elizabeth Joiner presents several "Communicative Activities for Beginning Language Students." E. F. Austin and S. Galvin examine a specific adult ESL course in use in Australia in "'All's Well That Starts Well': An Evaluation." Finally, Alan S. Milne addresses the problem of heterogeneous ESL classes in "Coping with Different Language Levels: Small Group Work." (JB)
