All You Need to Know to Live Healthy

Hi Eid, Yousef, and Abdelrazaq,

Hope you guys are doing well.

I've just come across the site below about healthy food and the kinds of food we need to avoid to have a healthy heart:

Hope you find it useful and helps you to better understand Unit 3 in NS.

Water Pollution (APES Final)

Hi, again Learners,

I've come across this video and noticed that some of the new vocabulary words of Unit 3 are used in a different context or situation that could help you better understand their meanings.

Hope you like it and find it beneficial.

I'd really like to hear your comments or any question at all on the video.

Hello from New York!

Hi Learners,

Hope you are doing well. How are your classes going? I miss you all.

I'm having a wonderful time here at the Convention, TESOL 2008, as I've learned a lot today. I participated in a long but very useful session from 9 am to 4 pm, titled "English Language Learners as Writers in a Digital Age", and I'm going to attend another one in 30 minutes; it's going to start at 5 pm to 9 pm.

The first session was really great and I've already learned a lot about how we can use Google Documents for our writing activities, and how to create podcasts using the program GaragBand (it's for Mac computers) and I'm very happy about it. We did a hands-on or a practive activity, and I've managed to record my first podcast using GarageBand. I will try to upload it to this blog later so that you can listen to it, and then, let me know what you think.

I'll talk to you more about the convention or conference, soon but I have to go to the second session now.

Best regards!
