    Dear Eva,
    I was one of the attendants in your workshop on Wednesday. You were wonderful. Thank you for all that invaluable information you shared with us. I really enjoyed and benefited so much. I wish you even more success in the following course of your career.

    Hi there! I dropped over here from Janet B.’s blog. We have a lot in common — about everything on your Glogster thingy (cool) applies to me, except my two kids aren’t twins. I have been teaching English for 20 years, though!

    I’m not new to blogging but am just starting my teaching blog. It’s not easy with so much wonderful stuff already out there.

    I signed up for the Images TESOL course like Janet, but maybe we’ll run into each other on the Web in the future.

    Dear Eva,

    I discovered your blog through blogathon. I really liked your blog and become more interested in your use of technology. My institution (Cankaya University, Ankara) is organizing a symposium on e-learning practices in secondary education and I wonder if you’d like to share your e-experiences in the symposium. If you are interested and available on 16th of April, could you please contact me. Thanx.

    Hi Eva,
    I found you on the aroundtheworldwith80schools network. My classes in Australia would have loved to have skyped you but the time difference is no good.
    I’m looking for classes in different cultures which my students can talk to as part of celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8th. Would you have girls in Years 7 – 10 who would be interested in this kind of discussion? I’d like them to talk about the lives of girls/women around the world. Maybe we could use some sort of chat/email forum seeing as skype will not be an option?

    Hello Eva
    I am an EFL teacher in Mexico and I have subscribed to your blog since the first teacher challenge. You have so much to share that I added you to my feed-reader.

    As an EFL teacher in a public university, I manage two active blogs, one for my professional development classes http://teachingknowledge.wordpress.com and one for an Academic Writing class I teach to advanced level students. http://writingcu.wordpress.com.

    I am currently looking for mentors to read my writing class students’ blogs. It is the first time all of my students are blogging and they are thrilled. Everytime they see the cluster map grow new red dots they start proofreading with more detail.

    Would you be able to direct me in you PLN to any EFL teacher that would like to share commenting with his or her writing class at the university level with my students? I am looking for a writing circle for 22 students.

  1. […] I first came across this idea on another EFL teacher’s blog that I follow, and she has posted her take on this idea and a poem to get you started: http://languageladies.edublogs.org/about/ […]
