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 monthJanuary ~ A fun way to improve your pronunciation is to practice saying what are known as tongue twisters. One of the most famous tongue twisters to help you work on the /p/ sound is, “Peter Piper.” It goes something like this: “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?” Talk to your American friends and ask them to teach you their favorite tongue twister, or type “tongue twisters” into your favorite Internet search engine and see what happens! See you next month at the EFLSuccess English Corner.
