2. From Mona and her group:
Hi dear members,
We think it is really a very interesting lesson. Blogs has a great importance for us as undergraduation students. It's a great means that can be used in:
1- Open discussions regarding our study of English as a second language, or general discussions on puplic topics from our real life.

2- Share our ideas, attitudes, and opinions about many issues.
3- Help shy students -like us - to express their thoughts freely without embarrassment.
4- Show our talents and improve our abilities and hoppies by composing our own blogs in any field.
Finally.. We'll send more details from home as the connection here is so slow.
Best wishes

From Reham and her group:
About Blogs:
How can blogs be used in English teaching and learning:

- In our opinion, blogs are useful at learning because through them anyone can write a question and the others can help him in the answer like what we did in the novel the first simster.

-Promote critical and thinking;

-Promote analogical thinking;

-Be a powerful medium for increasing access and exposure to quality information;

-Combine the best of solitary reflection and social interaction (or giving space for both individual reflections and collaborative, social work online with others).

- It could be a place to publish the course curriculum, class rules, homework assignments, and handouts, and it costs nothing.

- They are democratic tools that support different learning styles allowing each one an equal opportunity to have a voice in the ongoing conversation. Also, they give chance to shy students to express themselves and participate without feeling embarrassed.

From Omar:
Hi dear group,

Blogs have big importance for all of us so how can blogs be used for language learning purposes?

1-students can collect thier best work and send it to others to see online on e-portfolio.

2-blogs can help shy students to express themselves without any fear.

3-blogs are source of information but sometimes they might be wrong because everyone is allowed to publish whatever he wishes.

4 exchanging ideas with each other and gaining information and experience.

Thats all for now.


  1. Hello members really iam sorry as thier is alot of misspealing in my subject

  2. Dear colleagues,
    A question was sent by your colleague, Manar Ahmad. Of course, I'm going to do my best to help her by searching for material that might help her to answer it. But before doing that, I'd like first to receive your answers as far as you understand this interesting socio-political comedy. All of us will help Manar to find an answer. The question is: "How did George Bernard Show depict the struggle between morals and economics in Major Barbara?" I'll be waiting for your comments and posts before giving my personal answer.
    Best wishes
