Welcome to our Spring semester!

Welcome to our spring semester. I use this "blog" to help you study at home. The links to other ESL websites are very useful for practicing your listening, reading, grammar, and even speaking. Please use them. If you only study English during class time, you will not learn quickly.

Welcome to the Winter Trimester!
Hello, this is a simple "blog" where I post information about the class. One of the most important uses of this blog is the "Links" section to the right.
