Every week one point English phrase lessons are posted on this site, to be studied by students and used in class. Many of our students then write their own student examples in their notebooks and if they are good, the teachers will then choose the best student examples to be posted here, for all students to benefit from. If you would like to see your examples posted here, write ’em down on a scrap of paper and submit them in to your Smith’s English teacher. Don’t forget your name and school location if you want it posted to the student examples page.
Links are fun! Check out the links in the post to see fun stuff, or to enjoy a little extra English study!
