Jul 30, 2010 - 0 comments

It's hurricane season, and I write a bit about it each year...but there is never enough space to do the hurricane preparations justice, and I know that our readers are the ones most likely to have:

  • Recently arrived
  • Not understand the threats or dangers of a hurricane or if they are in a danger zone.
  • Not know how to prepare beforehand.

Amazon.com is one of my favorite places to search for books to buy. I'm a good customer. But here's a mystery:

I just discovered that Easy English NEWS is available at Amazon. This is odd, since they never asked to be distributors, and I don't sell to them. (They generally ask for a 55% discount from publishers, then undercut the publishers own prices, and are hard to compete with. Which makes them a great place to buy books, but not to sell books to.)

I've compiled the hundreds of feedback "report cards" filled out by our teachers and readers and will be making only minor changes to our format and variety. 95% of you said "Please, no changes! We love Easy English NEWS just as it is." But some said, "Please add some grammar." So "Ask Elizabeth" will become "Ask Elizabeth About Grammar." This column will explain a typical intermediate-level grammar problem, and use vocabulary and structures from the current issue of Easy English NEWS to illustrate and practice the correct forms.

It's hard to believe that we're finally launching our new website, after all these years of getting it together. I thought putting out a 12-page newspaper was a lot of details, but this beats that. Luckily, the webmaster, Theo, takes care of putting my text and photos and design ideas into html and getting the links to link, and handling all the programming aspects. Heck, I don't even remember what html stands for, but Theo speaks html as his second language.

Customers ask us: "Will there be a price increase for the next school year?"

Yes, there will be a modest price increase for the 2010-2011 school year.

But the Good News is: You can avoid the price increase! Just order for next year by June 30, 2010. Prices now at our website for all newspaper and book orders are valid until then. Next year, there will be additional online support for Easy English NEWS such as more quizzes, activities, and word searches that you can download and print for your classes. We'll eventually have audio support on our website, and students will be able to hear some of the content read to them at a language-learner friendly pace.
