ESL Site of the Day

Posted by glasscastle on 28th June 2003

An
original example of smart web marketing, this site
allows you to
create beautiful business cards on-line, print out a sample for free,
or order the
actual cards for delivery in less that a week. While not designed
as an ESL site, it fits well with units on business practices, prepostions
and comparatives. Works great with language students studying business
and business students studying language.

Harry Potter and the International Order of Copyright

Posted by glasscastle on 28th June 2003

Of course you’ve read the latest Harry
Potter book Order of the Pheonix, but have you read Harry
Potter and Leopard-Walk-Up-to-Dragon
, in which Harry encounters
sweet and sour rain, becomes a hairy troll, and joins Gandalf to re-enact
scenes from
The Hobbit? How about Tanya Grotter and the Magic Double Bass, in
which Harry’s Rusian twin Tanya rides a double bass, sports a mole
instead of a bolt of lightning, and attends the Tibidokhs School of
Magic? Perhaps you missed Porri Gatter and the Stone Philosopher, wherein
Harry’s Belarussian clone wields a grenade launcher and re-fights the
White Russian wars. Tim
Wu uses the fiercely protected Harry Potter franchise copyright to
examine trends in world copyright litigation. From
Slate.
