Steven, got you up there! I did visit your blog previously but it
got lost in the "busyness" of my life. My apologizes and keep up
the great work! Agnieszka, do you have a blog to share? Let me
know, none listed on your page.... David
Comment by Steven Nishida on March 31, 2008 at 6:28pm
Thanks a bunch, David! I have to apologize, too, for not replying
to your very kind welcome message. My first child was born last
month (boy), so things have been less than normal around here! I'll
be sure to keep sending people to this community. I have some idea
of how demanding a community building project of this scale can be.
If you need anything from me, give me a holler and I'll do what I
can to lend a hand. This is probably not the right place for an
announcement, so I'll add something more complete later. For now,
just curious... Any chance you're going to make it to the PAC7 (Pan
Asian Consortium of Language Teaching Societies) Conference at
JALT2008 (Japan Association for Language Teaching) in Tokyo in
November? If you or any other EFL Classroom 2.0 folks make it over,
please let me know. I chair JALT's International Affairs Committee
and I'd be happy to help get our international guests situated and
taking full advantage of this year's collaborative conference.

Hi there
As I have just joined, I would have been surprised if my blog had been mentioned here! I am a French native speaker who has been teaching French and Spanish in England for nearly 15 years. I am a Head of Languages and I obviously have a strong interest in EFL as it is where I come from! My blog is called My Languages and it is at http://isabellejones.blogspot.com . You will find lots of links to EFL/ EAL/ English/ Literacy resources on it as well as links that can be used to help language teachers to integrate new technologies in their teaching.
I hope it is useful to members!

Comment by Shelagh Walton on October 9, 2009 at 3:16am
Hi Dave...

I'm wanting to ask your advice. My younger brother will finish his degree at university at the end of this year. My husband and I are currently teaching in Korea and have been chatting to him often since we got here. He is really keen on doing a winter English camp. I have looked on the internet and it is hard to really know where to start.

My brother is such a great person. He was head-boy (head-perfect/leader) at his high school and at university he has done incredibly well. More than that, he has such a good, open, flexible personality and is reat with children. He is very responsible too. Anyway, it sounds like I am promoting him too much now.

Basically he really would like to work on a winter camp. He has tried to contact about 3. He hasn't got a response back from any of them, except one and they said they had too any people applying.

Do you have any recommendations or tips?

Thanks so much
Comment by Henrick Oprea on November 27, 2009 at 3:42am
Hi there,

I've just joined this ning group, but so far I'm impressed with the wealth of resources and organisation of it. Congratulations! :)

I'm a teacher in Brasília, Brazil, who has just started his blogging experience. In my blog I talk about my general thoughts on ELT and matters related to education in general.

http://hoprea.wordpress.com

As I've just started blogging, I guess I'm still trying to find my voice. All help is welcome!

Cheers,
Henrick
