Hi all,
This is the part where I tell you how the new ESL games we got worked out with our clients. One word..-.wait for it- GREAT.

It was awesome and such a hit. The most interesting game was the one clients had to click and match US states. The games killed two birds with one stone; learning how to use the computer and English. I had fun this Monday in class and the fun continues on Monday.

Have a great Easter.

God bless you

P.S. 1: progress report on learning other languages... so far the only one I am making progress with is Swahili.
P.S.2: If you've not heard about Malcolm Gladwell (google him). He is the author of  Tipping Point, Blink and Outliers -excellent books-. He has a not-so-new- book out: What the Dog Saw and Other Adventures. I highly recommend it.


  1. Have you ever had a chance to work with Rosetta Stone? We have that through our work to help our firefighters learn Spanish. I was wondering if you were able to compare the two as to which was easier to learn with.

  2. I start Japanese classes next week so we will see how rusty my foreign language skills are....Glad to see that English lessons are starting up in full gear at the IRC

  3. I'm glad you have been successful in your language learning. I've never been one that leanrs languages well, but my sister is close to trilingual to I respect people who take to language.

  4. @ Brady: no we have not. What the client learn now is really basic English (the alphabets, identifying objects and basic pronunciation)
