English is a great tool for international communication. In my dreams, this site will someday provide resources to help you improve this skill. Meanwhile, visit www.krigline.com!

Just when I was starting to understand how to use WordPress, I got “promoted” from educator to administrator, and my spare time all-but disappeared. So, there’s not much hope that EFLsuccess.com will ever become what I wanted it to be (unless someone wants to volunteer to help me make it great!). I’d hoped that this section would have lots of resources for those learning English, but didn’t get very far. To see what’s here, navigate to the “resources” tab, then look at the menu and sub-menus. You’ll find an article about “punctuation when you type,” “basic writing tips,” class materials for “American Ways,” and more!

–Apologies if things at EFLsuccess.com don’t work, or don’t change very often. I’m a WP “beginner,” and a very busy guy! But you can report dysfunctional features via the addresses on the “about” post.

Monthly English Corner & Weekly Quote

  • August English Corner

    This month we will look at two practical ways to improve your English. First, pick a video (i.e., 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. Than trade places, and do it again for other clips. Secondly, build up your vocabulary schema by making labels for the various objects, appliances, furniture, etc., around your home or apartment–each month, label many things you don’t know how to say in English. Every time you walk around your home you will see these labels 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!  © Mark Peter, M.A. Used with permission.

    The world seldom notices who the teachers are, but civilization depends on what they do and what they say.
