CLASSROOM BLOGS:

 

Interesting site of the week:  Nigel and Trevor -- what goofy British schoolboys do for fun.  Really this has nothing whatsoever to do with learning English except that the characters in the cartoons are English, but I like this website a great deal.  Requires Flash player. 

 

Other favorite sites:  BookCrossings to read and release a book that you love or have found.
