Create your own Animation

Have you voted for your favourite blog on the Lexiophiles Top 100 Language Blogs ? If not, you have until midnight tonight to do so. I have been busy looking through some of the blogs on the lists and the following are just a few which have caught my eye today. Have fun looking through them and make sure you press for a blog in each of the 4 categories.

Language Teaching
English Spark by Neal Chambers; provides excellent examples for lesson ideas
A Journey in TEFL by Eva Buyuksimkesyan- always full of wonderful topics

Language Technology
Teach42 by Nick Dembo - I learned a lot from this site when I first started blogging
Box of Tricks by Jose Picardo - the title says it all

Language Professionals
An A-Z of ELT by Scott Thornbury - everything you need to know about ELT in alphabetical order
Word Spy - this is where I learn about all the new words that are being formed in the English language

Language Learning
Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day - always guaranteed to come up with brilliant lists
Diario di una Studentessa Matta by Melissa Muldoon - looks like a great blog to learn Italian

Ciao Janet! Grazie per aver parlato di me qui! Complimenti anche per il tuo blog. I am intrigued that you are in Abruzzo restoring a house! Lucky you! Dimmi dimmi! Che vanno le cose!?!? A presto. Melissa

Ciao Melissa

Grazie altretanto per la tua visita qui.

La casa procede slowly pero surely. E una vecchia casale e there is a lot of lavoro a fare. Stiamo ristorando le stanze di sopra adesso.

The upstairs is completely separate from the downstairs and we have to go outside to go upstairs, which is a lot of fun in the rain and snow :)Downstairs used to be le stalle like in all the old casale.

Tanti cari saluti
