In the fall of 2019, I'll be teaching ESL 346 ONLINE again. Here is what one student had to say about this class:



I would like to thank you. It was a pleasure taking this course with you. I learned a lot and especially gained a lot of confidence to write in English with all your tips and lectures. 

I liked your videos at the beginning of each module so much. It is a great tool to communicate online. Maybe you don't feel the same connection because video communication was in one direction, but I can assure your videos make a great impact on the students. 

Thank you for your organization too. It helped me a lot to keep track during the course.

I look forward to meeting you!
