Welcome to EFLsuccess.com!
Our list of resources for YOUR English-learning success is growing slowly. For example, several Movie Study Guides have been published (with more to come, as I move them from www.krigline.com/movies.htm). Under the “Resources” tab you’ll find posts about various holidays, such as the African-American Juneteenth holiday, Flag Day and Christmas. English learners/teachers can also find resources I’ve used in class (“resources” > “for class”), a page full of interesting links and a whole page of “Links for English-Learners.” In addition, I’ve posted a poem or two, and there is a helpful post about how to correctly punctuate when you type. You can find these resources using the menu above.
Though I rarely have time to update or tinker with this website, you’ll probably find something new every month or two. The sidebar’s “Recent Posts” box is a good place to start. In addition, our “EFL English Corner” tip (at the bottom of this page) changes monthly.
While you wait for me to find time to add more things, you can already find A LOT of useful resources and interesting photos at my old (antique?) website: www.krigline.com!
I also posting a blog for our friends and former students, as well as numerous inspirational articles at http://wp.krigline.com/
Thanks for visiting!
If you are in China, thanks for your patience as pages take so long to load (they appear almost instantly elsewhere). My old website mirror (www.krigline.com.cn) disappeared in 2018. If you are trying to reach a particular page, REMOVE “.cn” and be sure all letters are lower case, not capitals. –MK
English Corner ~ tip of the monthAUGUST ~ This month we will look at two practical ways to improve your English. First, pick a movie with a lot of action and call a friend who also wants to improve listening and speaking skills. Have one person face the TV and the other face away. Show a portion of the video but turn off the volume. The person facing the TV describes the scene to the person facing away. Then the person facing away describes what he heard. Finally, watch the video together with the sound to see how accurate you were. Secondly, build-up your vocabulary schema by making labels for the various objects, appliances, furniture, etc., around your home or apartment. Every time you walk around your home you will see the label or name and it will help to reinforce the vocabulary. It is also helpful to be able to associate the real object with the name in your memory. Visit again next month!
