CESL has a weblog, grammartalk, whose purpose is the discussion of grammar issues. Interested? It's intended for people who are studying TOEFL, who are stuck on certain issues, or who just want to know why things are the way they are. If that's you, come visit! It may take a while to get your answer, but you will. You can read about grammar issues, at your leisure...


Know any html? I've been getting bogged down in producing CESL Today, which is the student newsletter, and I strongly feel that since it's the students' production, the students' journal, the students' record of life here at CESL, students should be able to put it together themselves.

Now putting html together is a laborious task, I'll admit. It isn't easy. But when you're done, you'll have something to show people. Interested? contact me...
