Hello Readers,

Are you looking for a way to encourage students to communicate in English outside of the classroom? Let's face it, most students leave their English behind when they walk through the doors after class. So, what can you do? It's simple. Go to ...

... https://www.blogger.com/start and set up your own blog for your class. The website will talk you through each step to set it up, and then you can assign homework, make comments about the class, leave links to helpful websites for your students, and encourage discussion by assigning each student to comment on your entries.

Do you use a blog for your classes? If so, feel free to leave a comment about your experience here.

Hope that helps!
