Friends, Russians and country dwellers, I have a small request.

As an experiment, I'm trying to get students more interested in writing. The theory is that if they have an appreciative audience instead of just me telling them how many mistakes they made, they might be encouraged to write more.


I've started by putting one student's article on my site,

http://www.visarus.co.uk/community/index.php?command=view_article&id=36

and she's already pretty chuffed. If anyone has a spare moment, could you please read the article and then leave a (positive/constructive) comment by clicking on the link underneath the article. It's a fairly good read, and you'll be making a pretty girl very happy Smile

PS- Comment on content rather than accuracy of English Smile
