    Default New "Vocabulary Forum" at Word Surfing

    Hallo Red, Ron, TDOL and everyone at Using English,

    I hope that the new "Word Sufing" Vocabulary Forum will be of interest to you and your colleagues/students. This project is "for learners by learners" - and has only just started (26.07.04) at

    http://www.wordsurfing.co.uk/136345/index.html

    Learners who make a contribution should get some good practice and
    also help to teach other language learners something at the same
    time.

    One of the aims of the forum is to encourage students to learn more
    actively and their suggestions should ideally be checked by a
    teacher before sending them. In any case, their contributions will be
    checked there by either myself or another teacher. Suitable
    suggestions , with alterations/correction if necessary, will then be
    transferred into a Vocabulary Builder at
    http://www.wordsurfing.co.uk/136245/index.html

    Hopefully this will soon become a useful resource that is full of
    good ideas and grammatically correct example sentences - from
    learners all around the world.

    If you like the project please encourage learners to send in their
    suggestions and tell other teachers about it too.

    The other thing is that I'd like to include "USING ENGLISH" at "SITES OF SPECIAL INTEREST" at http://www.wordsurfing.co.uk/128647/index.html - and was wondering if you'd like to suggest any particular text for the review page? I hope so!

    Bye for now, thanks & best wishes from Budapest.

    Will :)

    Hi, Will- I'dd add the forum to our links. How about this text:
    http://www.usingenglish.com - Resources for learning the English language for ESL, EFL, ESOL, and EAP students and teachers. This site includes: glossary of terms, forums, free language software, and articles.

    Default Thanks

    Hi TDOL

    Thanks very much for the link and suggested "Using English" text. I'll add quite a bit more about your resources - and send you a link to your WS page once it has been done. ( It could be a few days yet though!!).

    Best wishes from Budapest :)
    Will
