Live Online Classes

Two live online events worth attending

noam-chomskyTwo live online events this week that are well worth watching, both very different.

The first is a Virtual Round Table with Noam Chomsky, who doesn’t require any introduction.  Lancelot School is now offering a series called « Virtual Round Table On Demand » for live online discussion with renowned authors.  This session with Mr Chomsky will be the first.

Seats in the virtual room are very limited, and already taken.  However there is unlimited space in the « overspill room » which will be hosted in Instant Presenter.  The event will be held at 21.00 CET, Tuesday February 17. More information and details about how to enter the session can be had on the Lancelot School site.

The other session will take the form of a debate on the subject Are online profiles safe? This will be hosted by members of the Digifolios EVO09 workshop, facilitated by Nellie Deutsch.  The session will be run in WiZiQ, and held at 21.00 CET, Wednesday February 18.

Englishonthe.net goes live!

Only four days into the new year and the first resolution for 2009 is already accomplished: Englishonthe.net is live to the world!  This site will not only become the portal for a number of language services, but we are planning for it to be a space for learning about what web 2.0 can do to help us learn and teach languages.

So what can you expect if you come back to the blog?

If you’re a learner of English you can find tips on improving your reading, writing, listening and speaking, and my favourite aspects of language learning: grammar and vocabulary development.  It’s amazing the free tools that are out there to help us.

If you’re a language teacher you can follow my adventures as a face-to-face EFL teacher translating his skills to the live online environment.

You can find out a little more about who I am in the about page.  logo_simon

Why don’t you subscribe to my feed?  If you haven’t got into using a feedreader yet, it’s really time to start.  It’s the only way of keeping yourself from Internet information overload.  I use Google Reader, but there are many other options.  Englishonthe.net is still in beta (isn’t everything?), and as I find my rhythm for posting new material, I won’t bombard you with too much information.

This site is also available in French, although there are a few more bugs in the French version that I’ll be working out over the next few days.

Thanks for your visit – stay tuned.
