About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!
