by offline discussion are you asking to meet in person or via phone?
thank you for your reply
the best answer is email or chat. I use Skype and google talk.
the reason is simple. I can probably guess that we are at least 10 time zones from each other. I am currently in Tokyo Japan; just moved last year because of my Japanese wife.
Meeting face to face is virtually impossible and the time zones make a telephone call impratical.
My English training idea stems from the fact that kids in Japan study English for 6 years. This is mandatory. After 6 years of studying any subject matter, you certainly should know it fairly well. In Japan, the education system stresses grammar, not conversation. The kids can read and write English fairly well, but can't speak much English.
This seems extremely strange; judging by the high level of science and mathematics taught in school. The system of English education is extremely broken in Japan. Everybody laughs when I tell them learning to read and write a foreign language is more important that speaking the foreign language. Well, that's how it is in Japan. I am making it my personal quest to break this broken system and give them something that is sorely needed in Japan.
Anyway, that is too much information about what I am trying to do.
If you can point me in the right direction, I would be eternally grateful. I also forgot to ask how Adobe Captivate might fit into all this. I notice Adobe carries a suite of e-learning products. My idea is to be interactive and fun, not so much a slide presentation look and feel.
