Happy New (academic) Year.

Hello everyone.

We're now into the new October-February cycle of courses. I am about to see two groups today.

I will take them through a few useful web sites, such as this one. this is a guide to the Net for students of English, so I'll begin by listing a few sites here:

1) The British Council's Learn English site for Adults

Listen to the Elementary Podcasts.

2) The British Council's Learn English for Teens.
Don't let the word 'teens' put you off. There is something here for everyone. Explore this site, but also check out "Skills"/"Listening Skills" on the menu.

3) The BBC's "Learning English" site.
Six Minute Grammar, The English We Speak, Adverb Position 2 - these are just some of the ways in which this site can help you.

4) For more advanced students: TED. TED stands for "Technology, Entertainment and Design". But it's about lots of things. How about "20 Words That Aren't In The Dictionary Yet"?

Or, if you're wondering what to do in your life, try watching this talk: "Why Some of Us Don't Have One True Calling"

One final thing. Whenever you visit a site, give us your reactions by posting a message in a Comment, or on the Tag Board. It's as easy as 1-2-3-, but if you find it difficult, just ask me.

More soon!
