Hi Nellie, this is Julia!
Greetings from Julia! Nellie, I have a question, maybe it's not a question: I used to teach English in a middle school in my hometown. Then I came to shanghai and worked as a salesperson. Currently I'm making efforts to have a breakthrough in my career. I know that teaching is always my heartest thing to do. Friends often ask me: hey, Julia, teach me English, my English is poor. Chinese students often pay more attention to their grades and spend lots of time on reciting words and grammar rules. Although in recent years, people focus more on communication, still they found there're few chance to speak English and make some progress. Then I got the idea of building up an openly English learning on-line community. I was a little overwhelmed by the idea and wondered where I should start. So many challenges for me. I learnt that the "Open educational resources" building includes seeking, composing, adapting, sharing. But still I don't know where is the best starting point. Maybe I should start with the New Concept English? It is a popular English learning book in China. So far, I am learning about e-learning tools now, since there're so many vedio, audio and slide sharing tools on the internet. I Enjoy talking to you, Nellie. Just now I was listening to your English course on Wiziq :0 It's wonderful! thank you.--heyjulia 09:23, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
Thank you for your kind words. Would you be interested in collaborating together on setting up a course? I also have a Moodle site LEO.

I'm interested in collaboration. It's an honour for me! You look like my teacher:) I feel it. I think I'm just at the beginning, and there're so much to learn. Best wishes!--heyjulia 00:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
