Hello World!

"Hello World !"  It's how a new blog is usually started. It's also used in many introductory tutorials for teaching a programming language, though this is not the case here. We are going to learn about the English language. Not just 'the' language, but 'about' it. My approach to second language acquisition (or third, or fourth) has always been considering it a vehicle, not just the goal itself; there are so many things to absorb throughout the process. Some call it Content Based Instruction (CBI), others Language for Specific Purposes (LSP)...What do you wanna call it? How about leaving terms aside and just enjoy with 'Our Favourite Things...?'  (check out Pomplamoose's Sound of  Music version).
Welcome to our space.
