New section for advanced students

13 11 2008

I have created a new section for 2nd course NA so that you guys can find links resources, videos and interesting websites I come across.

As you can see I am using this blog as a mini-website for extraclass materials and resources, but I want to hear your suggestions about it too.

Remember that teachers also need to be encouraged from time to time! so let me know what you think about it!

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!
