Snippets about me

I was searching for my own podcast site for a course I was teaching two years when I saw quite a few articles or snippets written about me and my love for using podcast as a learning/teaching tool. I have received a couple of emails thanking me for posting all the good resources I've been using on my class blogs and podcasts and that they are actually beneficial to other teachers, but to actually read something about you that other people have written is really quite something. I was elated. At a time when I was experiening a hormonal related depression, these sites are very uplifting. So thank you to those people who wrote them. I may have met you before but my memory is really getting rusty. I just wish that I could always have clear, crisp memory of what happened in the past. I think, this is also one advantage of keeping blogs and podcast. They help us remember.

Anyway these are the sites that I have found:

Comprehensible input podcast
Literacy tent. org wiki This is truly special. I've been mentioned on a Wiki!
Language teaching Moodle Newsletter (doc)
Summer School podcasts
Discuss it globally podcast

What does it mean to be a Dog?

What does it mean to be a Dog?
from Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people's confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues. Dog people make good leaders. They are compatible with those born in the Years of the Horse, Tiger, and Rabbit.

1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006
