New Semester - New Look!

I know, I know, this doesn't look like the old Enns Valley English.  Change is good!  The old address will still get you here.  And nothing has been erased - you can still find all the posts you've grown up with.

I'm still trying to work the bugs out and I need your help!  Leave a message in the comments if you see something that needs to be changed, or if you have suggestions to make the blog better! 

Thanks!

At the end of today's lesson, the class should have a good basis for each topic.  Beginning over break, you can start adding your own examples and details to the topics for Matura.
