The full April 1999 issue of the English Teaching Forum is a file far too large to be easily downloaded. Instead, you may download all articles individually.  Below is the table of contents from the April, 1999 issue. With each article, we have included the size of each file. The time that it takes you to download will depend on the speed of your modem and your internet connection; please make note of this before beginning to download an article.

You will need Adobe's Acrobat Reader to view these files. If this program is not currently installed on your computer, you can download it for free.
