Belmont International English website last updated September 22, 2017.

Welcome to our website
 
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.
 

 Fall semester classes have begun

As before, classes will be Tuesday and Thursday from 9 to noon.  Unfortunately, all classes are full right now.  Sometimes, students drop out and make a space avaliable for late registrants. If you wish, you may register on line at any time only for my class for advanced and moderately advanced students .  Go to the "Registration" page and fill out the form.  If a place comes available in the advanced class, I will notify you in the order in which I receive the registrations.

 Our class for the fall semester, 2017.  It's a wonderful group.  We have 16 different countries represented.  In the front row are our associate teachers: to my right is Agnes Zhang and to my left is Kin Sullivan.   Because of them, students have more opportunity to have personalized instruction.

 Go! Go! Go!
We are lucky to have Mari Ogawa in our class.  Mari is a cheerleader for the Titans, and she really knows how to get a group fired up with lots of enthusiasm.  We had been sitting and talking too long, but Mari was able to get us out of our seats, on our feet, and moving fast. She really got hearts pumping and blood flowing to our brains, and I think everybody learned better after her exercises.

 Everybody enjoyed the opportunity to do some physical activity for a change.

Everyone seemed to enjoy Mari's exercises.  In addition to getting the blood flowing, it got everyone in a good mood.

We work hard, but we have fun, too.  Language is an integral part of life, and we enjoy working together, playing together and talking together .
