    David, it's my second comment today :) - I have been studying your posts in detail :). I really truly like your work! I am going to use some of your lesson plans in my teachings :). I am about to have my first online teaching experience next week (Sofia, Bulgaria, AVO-Bell Language Teaching and Examination Centre) and am using two of your lesson plans - on conditionals and past deduction :). Warm regards to you and big thanks!!!
