Happy New Year!

I have to admit, I slowed down quite a bit over the holidays as I took some time off from the classroom, went out of town a couple of weekends to rest, and spent some time with family over the holidays. Now, as we welcome 2013, I'm FIRED UP (excited) as I think about future lessons and tips to share with you all here at the small English blog.

I'm happy & proud to let you know that our number of guests here and at the small guide site have more than doubled during the last half of 2012, so thank you all. I hope you continue to visit the small English blog and the small guide site to practice your English. Keep sending in your requests. I will eventually catch up and post those lessons.

I wish you all the best in this brand new year. May you all find tons of inspiration, determination, as well as the time and energy to reach your goals in 2013.

My goal here is to help you achieve confidence in your ability to communicate in English, and I hope I can keep your attention this year and that you'll keep coming back for more lessons and more practice.

All the best to you and yours.
