EFL Bliss - in lieu of a blog
This might have been a blog, but a blog demands something more frequent, and you end up with that horrible feeling of being slapped by the calendar because you haven't written anything for so long. But why write unless you really have something to say?
From time to time, though, we do actually write pieces that (usually) have a connection with EFL and the business of teaching English as a foreign language. Here is a selection.
