Maslow gives the needs a hierarchical order. Those needs at the bottom of the diagram overleaf are of greatest importance. A need towards the top would only be of importance to someone if the needs lower down were already largely satisﬁed.

One of the most important things to remember when teaching writing is that writing is a process
Very few native speakers will ever start writing at the top of the first page and continue straight through until they finish at bottom of the last one.

countries to which they have migrated. Because there are so
many languages in the world and so many reasons why students

English is a must here, and there are probably few countries where learners take
exam prep classes as seriously as Greek learners do.
