English Teacher Article Site Overview- 2007

| | 1 Comments

Since the end of 2004, we have recorded how many entries we have in some of the sections of our site, which means that we can see how much new content we have created since then.

In 2007, we put the Language Articles, Teaching Articles and PDF Lesson Plans into databases and currently have 26, 31 and 116 entries respectively. These sections are growing fast as we have an additional contributor, Alex Case, who has been adding a lot, which we're very grateful for. There are a further 14 articles in the Members' Area.

In 2007, traffic continued to grow fast, so thank you to all of you for using the site. We hope that 2008 will see many improvements and additions.

I'm a second year student in ESL teaching and I visited your weblog as I was doing research for my Culture & Pedagogy class on blogs which can be used by teachers and students and I must say I am quite amazed by yours. It contains so much pertinent information and lesson plans! Congratulations!
