    Hi Carl. Thank you for these contributions which I shall zealously squirrel away for future study and reference!
    I’d like to suggest Olya Sergeeva’s blog for the list. She gives her tips and responses to important questions that are always making the rounds in ELT circles. And she also chronicles her experiences with DELTA Modules 1 & 2, which is how I stumbled upon it. She’s also got a lot of cool ideas for video. What do you think?
