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 (lots more to come), English learners/teachers can find resources I’ve used in class (look under the “resources” > “for class” drop-down sub menu), you’ll find a page full of interesting links and a whole page of “Links for English-Learners“, 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.

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 (or www.krigline.com.cn)!

I’m also posting a blog for our friends and former students at http://wp.krigline.com/blog/


If you are in China, thanks for your patience as pages take so long to load (they appear almost instantly elsewhere).  –MK

Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • October English Corner

    This month in the English Corner I would like to talk about improving your English grammar. Many international students have an excellent grasp of English grammar. They know most of the grammatical rules much better than many Americans. Many internationals are very concerned about mastering grammar and they think that in doing so they have mastered English. This is not true, because English grammar is very complex and there are so many exceptions to the various rules. Learning grammar is much more than just understanding the rules. The best method of increasing proficiency is to use the grammatical structures in meaningful and relevant everyday situations. In the course of using English grammar in context you will begin to understand and become more proficient. See you next time at the English Corner.   © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    “Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.”

    – Stephen King (1947-   ; “Best selling” US novelist)

    (That is, good writing should use words you already know. If you have to use a thesaurus, you will probably choose a word that you can’t use correctly. Similarly, if you are writing in a “second”  language, you’ll often make mistakes by using things you simply find in a translation-dictionary.)
