Help! Analysis of a Korean speakers speech...

"agree with you David that we as teachers, in Korea, often compensate for the Korean student but there was several places within the video where I could not understand what he was saying either. Like Ellen, I think speech therapy could be very…"

Are you coping?

I was extremely happy when I came across this site as I felt overwhelmed as a first time teacher. I would like to say thank you to all the contributors to this site as I use so many of your ideas and materials to just cope with the demand to be an excelent teacher.What strategies are you using to cope with teaching in Korea?See More

Hi Dawn! Open the email with your egg-o-gram, and look for the url- I've underlined mine in this example:

That's the url you use to make a link : )

Hi Dawn, All David did was make a link to his egg-o-gram. But you have to send it to yourself first, to get the correct url to link. The url you sent me just put me on the main, make an egg-o-gram page.

So, I made one myself, sent it to my personal email (I don't think ning email will work) and below the image was the link, or url. Mine looked like this: http://host.oddcast.com/holiday_inn_ws.swf?gDoor=109&gClient=26&gTopic=1&mid=1835384

and I can turn it into a nice looking link using the chain icon in the comment tool bar above. So I type the words I want to use,

Happy Easter!

then I select the type, click on the chain icon, and paste the url into the place provided. Try it! If it doesn't work, then I will make pictures to show you : ). Great work, Dawn- keep playing with it!

That is fantastic, Dawn! You made a perfect icon! And you cropped the image into a square... excellent : )

Hi Dawn,

Welcome to EFL Classroom...I love your motto! I like all the things you do, but I do most of my dancing at home... I am a little shy to dance in public! What kind of dancing do you like to do? I can see we missed you with our formal welcome message! I apologize; things got really busy here in February and we got behind. But I assure you, we are very happy to have you with us! Here's some info about this site:

We have many teaching resources here that I hope you'll find useful and enjoy. Please visit our Welcome Page for lots of information about the community. Also check out our handy, quick loading Site Map.

There's always more to explore. If you are looking for a quick, effective activity, Lessons in a Can can't be beat. We have a big collection of Karaoke songs, especially suited for EFL use. There are many sources for professional development throughout the site (here's one big example!) ...and I'm always finding something interesting and new just by clicking around : ). Let me know if I can be of any help in finding or using a resource, it really is my pleasure.

When you have a moment, please share your experience and resources with us, too. Introduce yourself, share more about your country in our World Connections, chat, start or respond to a discussion, post a video or blog- let's keep creating a great teaching and learning community together!

Best wishes,
