Teaching English as Second Language

Hello everyone!

Creating a blog was rather a novelty for me. Though I was a bit clueless about this, I'm happy to say that I've succeded creating one quite fast. This has been quite a learning experience for me.
I'm Shashinie Wijayadharmadasa from Sri Lanka. I've been involved in the language teaching profession for more than 10 years. I teach at tertiary level; i.e. university students. Once they enter university, most of them need to follow their academic studies in the second language, i.e.English. Hving had their education in their mother tingues( Sinhala/Tamil), theyr find it quite a challenge to follow their studies in the the Engglish medium.
Now with technology developed to a great extent, I feel that we could teach our students to be preoficient in their second language with the use of various forms of digital technology.
