Teacher Spotlight: @EnglishAddicts virtually and F2F around the world

Gramster and Vocabster now online and pay what you want

Of course we’re happy they chose English Addicts and it was nice to know (…)

2 mini blog challenges + “who r u reader” survey results


    Nearly 50 responded to last week’s survey which is awesome.  THANKS!!! If you haven’t I’d still love to hear from you as it’s always fun to know who’s reading.

My 100th blog post, and a big merci to YOU!!!


  As this is my 100th blog post, I can’t think of anyway better of celebrating it than by THANKING YOU !!! In the past year we’ve gone on quite a few journées; I just checked and we’ve totalled up 2039 comments while dancing all over etymology, teaching English, supreme language geekness, Edulang’s efforts, and a fair amount of fun in between.  I’ve discovered so much about teaching from our online ELT community, just as I feel I’ve learned so much about myself AND again…   I HAVE YOU TO THANK FOR THAT, DEAR READER!!! wherever you are   I (…)
