Purpose: To practice reading and writing fluency on a weekly basis and to satisfy your TBA hours.

Setting up your ESL Blog:

*What is a blog?  A log is a journal or notebook. The word blog is a combination of “web” + log = blog! Therefore, a blog is an internet space for your thoughts and your work!
