  Language learning is situational and learning to teach or train teachers in two of the most disparate situations can lead to greater understanding of the basics of language teaching, learning, and training. In this paper we look at a teacher training program in Myanmar by two university professors of English from Japan. Developing language learning using technology may allow a country like Myanmar to be able to skip over the intermediary steps of laying infrastructure like wired internet and phone cables that is no longer necessary, to leapfrog into the 21st century. We outline the issues and caveats to such a proposal and then propose a way to move forward.
