About this blog and me
My name is Gina and I a former English teacher and also artist. I live in Greece on an island in the Aegean. I love it.
Back when I was teaching English I created this blog to help students to have more fun studying for their essential English examinations and spend less money. I loved teaching English but was really concerned to realise how much money families had to find to get their young people through the vital exams.
I believe that learning English is costing too many families too much money and too many course books and language schools are making students bored, confused and demotivated. Learning any language CAN of course be interesting, exciting and inspirational but the fact is that for many people all over the world an English qualification is vital for their future regardless of whether they want to learn it or have the resources or time. If this sounds like you my goal is to help you.
I’ve been searching the Web for more than a year now and I’ve found hundreds of brilliant resources for English Learners. I believe that students (and their families) could save lots of time and money by making use of Internet resources but they need some help to find these things and to work out how to apply it to their real courses. I can help!
You will see from the posts already here that I am trying to give lots of complete tasks so that anytime you want to work a bit on your English you can come here and find an interesting and valuable way to spend your study time.
The main focus is PRACTICE. Too many books give too many complicated explanations and not enough opportunity to DO what you need to learn until you really have learned it.
Most of the resources here are FREE but I will be recommending just a few products to buy. Not just any products though, If I recommend it, it is because it is a really useful tool and probably one you can use for the rest of your life and share with your family.
