Find what you need quickly!

I can’t believe that this is already blog post #50! Time does fly when you’re having fun. I’ve really enjoyed sharing my past teaching experiences and ideas with you all. I’m grateful to ESL-Library for giving me the opportunity to write about one of my favourite topics…grammar! I love this crazy language of ours. I also love checking out the comments section of my blog posts. It’s great to hear other teachers’ perspectives, especially when they are from so many different countries. Isn’t it amazing that we live in an age where sharing ideas with people from all around the world is so easy?

Here’s a handy list of the blog posts I’ve written so far. I’ve organized them into categories and provided the links so that everything is easily accessible. (Note: Some posts may appear in more than one category.)
