Purdue University Fort Wayne’s Teaching English as a New Language Program prepares students for teaching English to speakers of other languages. With how much has happened in Myanmar this past year, we’ll hear from students, professors, and community members who bring a variety of perspectives to language learning, international affairs, and citizen diplomacy 

This week, we have a virtual panel moderated by Andy Downs, Director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics. The panelists are listed below in the order they are introduced in the program.
