WFW: Writing for Webheads

ASSIGNMENT One - Join the eclass and send an introduction:

If you don't want to send a picture of yourself, you could send me any kind of graphic that you think represents you. Or you could identify a graphic on the Internet, and I can find it and copy it to your page. (You can start with a graphic on the Internet and add your own picture later.)

ASSIGNMENT Two - Participate in our live online Sunday chat class or the email Eclass:

Students, don't worry if because of your time-zone or Internet connection you can't do all of these things. Do what you can and do what you have time for.

ASSIGNMENT Three - Improve your webheads webpage:

Whenever you write something for your Webheads web page, a teacher will correct the grammar and put it on your page. You can compare what you wrote with the corrected piece to see where your mistakes are.

If you want to see a good model web page ...

ASSIGNMENT Four - Start your own web site

Ying Lan, Bahia, Jose, Deden, Denilson, and Bubu have started the next step, and that is for YOU to start YOUR OWN web site.

To start your own web site, visit or are two I like, but there are other free web hosts you can use; here's a list). Click here for illustrated instructions on getting an account with Geocities, and how to upload your web pages to it (but this is a bit out of date).

Making your own web page: I used to use Microsoft Word 97 for this one and save my documents as HTML <Click here if you want to learn how to do this.> (this is still a good first web page editor, Word 2000 is not recommended) If you have Office 2000 Premium, you can use Front Page. Now I use Hot Metal Pro from

For graphics manipulation I use Thumbs Plus, examination copy available from

If you want online help, join us any Sunday at noon GMT in live chat and we can give you instructions while chatting. See a chat log where students find out how easy it is to start their own web sites: Pchat27d.htm


In the end, what you do in this class is up to you. You don't have to do anything if you don't want to. Learning English is like growing food or raising children. You get from it what you put into it.

In Writing for Webheads, teachers and classmates are available to help you "grow" your English language skills. We are all making new friends and increasing our skills as well. To us it is worth the time, and we welcome you to join us.
