Greetings from Davina, University of Tasmania

Dear Dr Si Fan and Dr Yun Yue,

I am utterly impressed that you have conceived of such a wonderful initiative, and developed it to the point where it is already receiving attention from all around the world. I can think of nothing more important than research and advocacy which focuses on 'collaborative co-existence' in an Australian context. Well done! I am very proud of you, and I look forward to attending your conference in Phuket, Thailand in May, 2012.

See you soon!

Information on the Australian Multicultural Interaction Institute has just arrived at my desk and just wanted to say congratulations on the establishment of the Institute and all the best for the future.
I work in the ACT and the challenges have been and continue to be, the need to understand how literacy approaches differ fundamentally from ESL approaches and how culture can influence engagement in ESL learning and a sense of belonging. Teachers who understand their students cultural and linguistic backgrounds always go that step further in making a connection.

Once again – well done.
