A Journey in TEFL

Some of us have already started teaching, some of us have started going to school to get ready for the new school year. During summer I bookmarked some sites that I thought will be handy now.

    Hi Eva!

    Awesome list of links – some of my groups start next week! I will use some of them. Thanks for reminding me of the Carnival as well – the marvel of blogs and social media, so many – but we sometimes forget!

    Have a great new school year,

    Hi Eva,

    Great list of resources. I can’t believe summer will be over in some days and I’m sure my students will feel the same way. At least, with some fun activities like these ones we can keep the summer spirit alive. Sure my students will love to speak, write and create projects about their summer holiday.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Hello, my name is Amanda Durden, I am a college student at the University of South Alabama and was assigned to read your blog for my EDM310 class.
    I LOVE some of these ideas, I am an aspiring elementary teacher and printed many of these out to put in my resource book for future use, I especially liked the slideshow on the creative versions of introduction activities!
    My twitter account is @adurdenedm310 and I am very interested in reading your future posts, I really feel that I could learn a lot!!
    My blog is durdenamandaedm310.blogspot.com

    Thanks :)
