Regular readers of this Foreign Language Learning and Teaching English as a Foreign Language blog will at once notice that the site now has a new “look” and several new features added. This is an effort to make this blog even more informative and useful to both EFL teachers and English as a foreign language learners. Briefly, I’ll mention the current new features and explain their use and purpose.

Another addition is the automatic feed posting each day of language learning related news from around the globe through a Google News feed directly into this site.

Now you can keep up with what’s happening with language learning world wide with just a mouse click or two daily.
