LOL - Google translator

If you have time try the Google translator on my blog and have fun.

It's so funny and to read the posts in my mother tongue Croatian.
But it can really come in handy sometimes. I bet it's interesting in other languages too.

Also check this video- translating into seven different languages at the same time!!!
I didn't know that is possible by only one person! LOL!

Adding some gadgets to my blog!

It' really fun to explore and learn, even though it takes you an amount of time.

As you have noticed I have added some new gadgets to my recently created blog,
such as Time(clock), Blogs I am followingFlag counters,
Feedjet - which lets you see friends and visitors as they arrive on your blog or website and, even Google translator especially, for those who would be more comfortable reading my blogs in another language even though, it isn't the best translation in the world.

I've added these gadgets by using HTML link - you go to Design, click on Add a Gadget ,choose H TML link, copy the html link to embed the gadgets.
When I got the hang of it (after some time :)))) , it only took me about 15 minutes to add them onto my blog, which in my opinion, now looks more like a true Blog. 

O my God,now let me just count how many times have I written the word gadgets,or add or have!!!!
A lots of repetition here,hope you don't mind. I will use this post as a reminder myself.

Still a newbie here trying to improve every day!

Attending EVO 2011

After a small seminar in my school I came across an add about TESOL seminar under the name EVO - Electronic Villlage Online. I decided to join in even though I didn't know what to expect. So, I enrolled in two seminars one called BAW2011 and the other  Creating Vocabulary Activities.

During 5 weeks teachers from all around the world comment, work together, laugh, learn whether in online virtual classrooms or using some webtools. It has been a thrilling and overwhelming experience for me, something I really haven't expected. But, what is most important is the help, support, knowledge of our moderators and co-ordinators who encourage you to become a Webhaed and use the Internet for self training and for eduaction of others, by this I mean our students.

It took me a while to start this blog, because eventhough people who know me would say I speak a lot. Somehow, I didn't know what to say! But I got the advice from a wonderful webhead Teresa, just try it - in small steps.
So, I did. Hope to have even more things to write here especially when our 5 week EVO courses finish, but for now, this is it.
