About Me
I have a web site at
http://users.on.net/~rayadams/ You can find more information there. My interest in the English language arises from several years in the publishing and design business and, more recently, several years of teaching English to migrants and university students from overseas. I have learned what can only be described as 'bits and pieces' of several languages, and this provides insight into the struggles my students have with English. I use the Visual Thesaurus primarily to find better ways of explaining the inter-relatedness of words and their meanings. Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
