Your Comments; A Site for Level Two

I am very pleased that the following people have left comments on the Blog:
David, Giacomo, Riccardo, Adriana, Veronica, Laura (DoubleL) and Jacopo.

But, when I last counted, I had 87 students! The above list contains just ... seven students!
That's fewer than ten per cent.

Come on, cybernauts! Visit the Blog, try the sites - and send in your comments. Remember, your ideas and suggestions are as valuable as mine.

Here's something for Level Two (Pre-Intermediate) students:
The English File site: http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/
This is the site for your course book.

Click on the new Pre-Intermediate book.
Then click Grammar.Then click File 2. Now, try Lesson A, past simple regular and irregular, 1 and 2.
Alternatively, go straight here!

Then try Lesson B, past continuous.
When you have finished, send a comment to all of us (click on the comment link)

Tell us what the site was like. Answer these questions:

Did you learn anything new?
Did you get any help with the exercises?
Was it easy to navigate round the site?

More soon!

OK, why not start with some Grammar? Click on Try This: Intermediate Grammar, then File 1 then Lesson B: Past Tenses: Simple, Continuous, Perfect (1).

Do the exercise and see how well you did.
