Linguistics at SIUC

Save the Linguistics Department! With the publication of this article (may be slow-loading), the struggle to save Linguistics has become more public. The question really is whether an MA TESOL program can survive, let alone flourish, without a Linguistics Department. In a Foreign Languages Dept.? In English? By itself? I don't think so.

One might look around at a time like this and say, the market is flooded with English teachers...they're all over the world, they're being turned out by places with much less than SIUC. But that's exactly my point. At a time when other schools (like No. Ariz. Univ. and Univ. of So. Mississippi) are going pro, setting up TESOL PhD.'s, that's what we should be doing also. Training the teacher-trainers...

Now is the time to save Linguistics...let them know how you feel. We voted unanimously to save the department...now it is time for the Faculty Senate, the Board of Trustees, etc. to do the same...

Hi,

I just across sites and found that your Blogs are amazing.

Do you know, your blog can generate extra income by posting Google Adsense? If you ever know about Adsense, you understand to get hundreds of dollar per month is not an easy way. One of the most important is to generate massive traffic.

Few days ago, I found a very useful software that will generate hundreds of back links to our website. Do you know why back links is so important to generate traffic?
Yes, you are right! back links will jump up your position in search engine! If your position gets higher from day to day, you'll find your traffic increase significantly as well.

That software is Blog Link Generator!

This software so powerful. You even do not need to create links directory in your site. Is that sound good? You put your link in other's website, but you never put a link back to their site?

Visit www.LinkInBlog.com now and I so confident you'll never sorry.
