In this article, Marie Snider, a returning English Language Fellow in Burma who works on the Lower Mekong Initiative's Professional Communication Skills for Leaders project, describes the activities of Nyein Ei San, an English teacher in Upper Burma. Ms. San has been active in the English language teaching (ELT) community in Burma for the past decade, teaching English as a foreign language and training English teachers in her local community. Due to the variety of students she teaches, Ms. San focuses her planning and teaching on meeting the unique needs of each class with topics generally focusing on volunteer work, community development, civil engagement, and academic skills. Whether middle-level civil servants in the Burmese government, Access students that represent a range of ethnic and religious groups in Burma, or the Youth Forum, for young people from Burma's Sagaing Region, all report that their learning skills have greatly increased their confidence in using English in multicultural and professional settings, and in preparing them to become future leaders in their communities.
