A German company called Cornelsen Verlag, who appear to be one of the major educational publishers in Germany, have just written to me. They are working in co-operation with a Russian publisher, producing a series of school books for Russian students, teaching them English as a foreign language. They want to use an excerpt from my blog, to be used in the topic ‘Future World’. The author preparing that topic came across this: http://www.smacula.co.uk/2008/10/works-job-description-and-3d-printers.html and thinks it would be a suitable authentic material for it. I have, of course, gladly given them the permission, and am quite pleased that something I have written would become part of not just a published book, but also serve to educate people. A proud moment for me J!
