Hi Teacher Dude!
I have already looked at and bookmarked that site, but thank you anyway! :) We have already communicated. I think the last time I emailed you, it was with my dialect name "Franje", which I use for my other blog.

I have commented on the blog of one of your students. Do let us know of any other student blogs.
