Travelling ho!


This is already day two of my trip to the magical isle of Fernando de Noronha- don't know when the next post will be. But expect to hear some great stories and hopefully some wicked pics!

Blog write on!



I had the joy of sharing this new and marvelous tool with a group of conversation students - a great bunch by the way, whose enthusiasm and joy for the language is always a shot of new energy for this teacher- and seeing how we can get students engaged in real learning.


They got so on board that one of them kindly reminded me that I had forgotten to allow people to comment on what I post.

Not only did I sell them the blog idea but I got them thinking about the kick of creating an audio file, aka podcast.

So to take the words of Blogger.com:

Blogging is about more than just putting your thoughts on the web.
It's about connecting with and hearing from anyone who reads your work
and cares to respond. With Blogger, you control who can read and write
to your blog — let just a few friends or the entire world see what you
have to say!

Russell Peters is de real deal!

I just came across this comedian- he is a real clown! Hilarious. Great for English accents.
