Belmont International English website last updated March 3, 2015

Welcome to our web site!
This site has been created as a medium for teachers and adult students of English
for Speakers of Other Languages to use to share experiences. It is designed primarily for intermediate to advanced students and their teachers.
Belmont  International English, an advanced class with emphasis on oral communication,
is only one of the English classes supported by the generosity of the Belmont United
Methodist Church.  There are also English classes for beginner and intermediate English
learners at the church.  For more information on these classes, click on the link below.

 see youIt's so good to  again!

Because of the terrible weather, Metro Nashville schools were closed for two full weeks, and we lost a lot of opportunities

to study and practice our English.  Today was a good day, but I am concerned about Thursday.  Bad weather is predicted. 

Thursday morning, listen to the radio or TV or go to my website to Nashville students and click on the channel 5 link. 

If Metropolitan Nashville- Davidson County schools are closed, we are closed. 

The due date for the submissions of the first draft of your essays for the Writers' Showcase  will be extended, of course,

but I can't extend the March 10 deadline to have the finished product in the hands of the judging committee. 

Please have your first draft to me this week.
