Thanks to Khusni who joined me in the chat session today! Please check the calendar for the time that I will be on next. I'm trying to be on here twice a day but I can't be on long since I need to concentrate on responding to those using the new feedback system. Take care everyone!

Hello everyone! I will be online now for an informal chat session every day. Please check the calendar for the two times a day that I will be on. I'm starting with a half an hour each time, as I want to reserve time to give personal feedback to the people that are using the new learning system. Take care and talk to you soon! :)

Hello everyone! Use the new Speaking Practice link on the Practice page to get personal feedback on your speaking practice. I tell you a little bit about myself in the first frame, and the questions are super easy! I'll respond and help you with your speaking skills!

Hello everyone! Check out the Practice page and see what's new-our beta edition of the system that we will use to give you feedback on your speaking skills. Later we will implement feedback opportunities for your writing as well. To access the system, simply go to the Practice page and look for the big video with the text that says, "IELTS, TOEFL Speaking Practice". Click on this, and begin by creating an account and following the prompts. Record your voice by using the "comment" link at the bottom center of the screen to record your voice using the microphone icon. Send this back to us and I'll reply to you as soon as I'm able. We will hold a live session on the Practice page tomorrow for anyone that has a comment or questions on this topic. Check the calendar on the practice page for those details. Thanks everyone for your participation. I hope that this will enable me to be of greater use to the SpeakAlley community. Take care all!

Hello everyone! I apologize for not being able to come to the sessions and for not posting the cancellations-there was a mix-up on that, sorry-anyway, I'll be back but in a slightly different way. Due to my chronic health issues and other reasons, I am glad to be able to be introducing a new forum for helping you with your English. This new system will allow me to give more personalized, individual help to more of you, keeping my one-on-one interactions private, gives me a greater ability to give you feedback and advice on ALL your endeavors-reading, writing, speaking and listening-AND be able to interact with you at a time that is both convenient for you as well as accommodating my unpredictable health issues and time differences. I hope that with this new system, I will have to chance to help you advance more quickly due to the individualized assistance, remove some of the delay issues encountered in group sessions and facilitate your learning. I'm excited to have this opportunity to be of more assistance to the SpeakAlley community! One last thing; we will be holding a introductory session soon to explain how the new system works. Please check back here on SpeakAlley for updates to these new programs and how to join them. You should continue to watch the calendar for times that I will be online to just chat with everyone and say hello as I really enjoy getting to meet and get to know everyone on a personal level as well. As always, if I can be online spontaneously as well, I will, but for now, my priorities have to be with helping everyone in the more structured venues. As we recruit more native speakers to help, I will be able to be on the Practice page sessions more often. You will still "hear from me" in the new systems due to my privilege of being able to be involved in them. I'm excitedly looking forward to all the new programs we will be launching in the months ahead and I hope to get to know even more of you! Take care, all. :)

Pebble, rock, boulder, hill, mountain-what's the difference? Thanks Rajindra for the chance to share some photos of my old "stompin' grounds"!

Here's the link: https://www.speakalley.com/blog/whats-the-differen...

This is the hill I use in the blog post above. I took this while standing next to our "livestock tank"; I liked the reflection of the summer clouds that evening, mirrored on the glassy surface of the seasonal pond. I used to love to listen to the "music" of the frogs on warm summer nights through my open window.

Today’s session was a lot of fun. Only Raul joined so Suresh and I gave the topics a try. I was a perfect example of something you should NOT to do on an English proficiency exam-but hey, I’m old and my test taking days are over! LOL Actually, it’s just because I get to do it for fun and that’s my only reason, so I have a luxury that most of you don’t have. :D
