Hello from the AGU in America 2007 team

Greetings to all AGU in America participants for 2007! My name is Nina Liakos, and I am the program coordinator; I also teach the writing class, where you will be reading and writing (yes, in English!) about your experiences in the U.S. and posting your impressions to your own weblog! I am planning lots of activities for you, and I am very much looking forward to meeting you in August!

Greetings! I'm looking forward to meeting and working with all of you in August. I'm planning class activities that will give you lots of chances to listen to and practice speaking in English. It'll be fun and I know you'll make great progress while you're here. We're busy preparing for your arrival and hoping August is not too hot this year.
Shirley Thompson, AGU2007 Instructor
