(Left to right) Amna S. & Dalal

Amna lives in a residential area that has no Internet connection, yet. Therefore, she and I agreed to communicate outside our class(room), using SMS text-messages, in English, via our cell-phones.

Dalal, who is with Amna S. in Group 1, seemed inteersted in the idea and has exchanged a few SMS text messages with me, the class teacher, during this Spring 2004. She has also contacted me using MSN Messenger, on the Internet.

hi miss
we really miss you

amna ahmad

(At that time, I was in Long Beach, CA, USA, participating in TESOL2004, at the Webhaeds' PCI, on March 30 and then presenting my project at the Internet Fair on March 31).

Amna has built a blog, but she forgot and used capital letters! Amna promised to rename her blog asap, (as soon as possible).

Thanks Amna for your effort.
