I am Leslie Simonfalvi, director of the International Teacher Training & Development College in Budapest, Hungary. I am very happy to have joined this Forum and now I want to introduce myself shortly. I am a teacher and a teacher trainer. I teach English for speakers of other languages (TESOL) and train teachers to do the same. I follow the Humanistic – Person-Centered Approach to People, the Communicative Approach to the Language, and the Total Quality Education Principles to Educational Management. Presently I am most deeply involved in creating a Comprehension-Based, rather than a Knowledge-Based Society, i. e. learning environment. I was lucky enough to be invited to the 14th WCCI (World Council for Curriculum and Instruction) Conference to Pécs, Hungary in July 2010 where I presented this venture under the title: ’Bloom’s Taxonomy: Bitter Honey for a Language Teacher’, and subtitle: ’From an Educational Black Hole towards an Educational White Whole’. If any one of you is slightly interested, I would be more than happy to email you a more detailed Introduction.
