OK, here we go...

Hey! I'm Cleve, and I'm a business English teacher and consultant currently based in Caracas. Most of the time I'm running a software start-up; we're building a web application that helps English teachers improve the language performance of their adult students. I also teach classes and workshops, and consult for corporate customers on effective language program design and management.

So, why this blog?

Well, first off, I've just begun a short online course on using blogs for language teaching, either with students or as a reflective tool (so far, the course is great - a community of practice of 150+ professionals from over 30 countries). Starting a personal blog is one of the Week 1 assignments. So this is the proximate cause of English360.

But of course I've been meaning to start blogging for a year or two now. I have a lot of ideas about my profession, and I'd like to share them with you. Agree or disagree, both or neither, but share your thoughts in the comments section....

Welcome to blogosphere, Cleve! You have made the first step towards establishing a presence online.
I am looking forward to your comments and reflections on the assigned task for week 1 :-)
Warm regards from Brazil

I think that a lot of us are using this course as an "excuse" to start blogging. It is going to be interesting to see where we all go with it.

I look forward to reading your thoughts as the blog progresses.

Business blogging has become a very popular method of advertisement. I think it adds a very personal touch to the product that you are selling.

I won't go into detail here, because you probably already know all of this but to give you an idea of the breadth of blogging you might take a businessman's look at Seth Goden's blog (http://sethgodin.typepad.com/) or maybe one of my favorites, Michelle Miller (http://www.wonderbranding.com).

I will be interested to see how this effort works out for you.
