Dear Leny, Nice to hear from you!
I've searched the photo you mentioned but to no avail! Sorry! The only one I liked is this one posted here. How do you like it? This site is absolutely fantastic, isn't it? I'm so glad I came across it, been so helpful and useful I can hardly find the words. Teaching is a thankless profession, we are aware of that, but that is what we enjoy doing, so be it!!!!!
I'll try to post more in our community.
All the best,
Nice to hear from you.
I have already finished to write a lesson about "Smoking Awareness".
I will send it to you and you can select some tasks to your English lessons, if you think it is nice to your students.
Yes, take your time with the icon... when I started the group for Vietnam last night, I changed the icon three times before I was satisfied. When you love something very much, you want everything to be an expression of that love... at least that is the way it was for me in starting the Vietnam group. I have a feeling it is like that for you too, with Brazil : ).
The nice part is, since you created the group, you can change anything you want, anytime! It is yours, and whoever you share it with. Because I am an administrator on EFL, I can get into the code and help you with whatever you want. So don't worry, be free, if you make a mistake or don't like something a month from now, it can easily be changed/ undone.
Your love shows : ) - it is just what I was hoping for when I started this project.
Thank you for creating the group for Brazil! It is a new project, and we need members to start the group for each country, that is why you got that message when you clicked on the Brazil icon. You did a great job!! If you need help with anything else, please let me know... I can put an icon up for the group, any image you choose... or we can just use the one on the World Connections chart.
Now we just need more members to join and make posts! We could do an advanced member search and invite all the members who list Brazil on their profiles to join... if you think this is a good idea, I can help you with it... or, we could just wait and see who shows up!
If you want a map or anything else on the group's main page, but you're not sure how to do it, please let me know, I can help. But the most important step is already done. The next person to click on Brazil will find a nice group to join! Thank you : )
