Hello Followers!

30 days from now, Diana Funtana ESL Productions will expire. That means you will no longer have access to the videos and materials. That’s the bad news!

The good news is: I’ll be seeing up a new site tentatively under Diane Engelhardt, ESL Author that will feature the ESL books I’ve published with McGraw Hill Education, but also include Diana Funtana’s videos and worksheets. I can’t say yet when the site will be up and running, but probably in the New Year at the latest.

If you’d like me to keep you up-to-date, e-mail and I’ll put you on a mailing list.

Thanks again for your interest and support!!!

All the best!

Diane Engelhardt, aka Diana Funtana

To Followers from France

Dear Followers from France,

I have a very special request.

I am quite amazed and really thrilled that my website/blog has attracted so many followers and viewers from France. In both 2014 and 2015, and continuing into 2015, France has been the #1 country. Last year in all but July, August and September (holiday time, I guess) France consistently topped the list, and by a wide margin.

What I’m really curious to know is why, and how? Is it because of the links on Marielle Bianchi’s blog and Michelle Henry’s website? What is it that you like or find useful about Diana Funtana ESL Productions? Have you used the videos in your classes and what has been the reaction from your students? Have any of you ordered worksheets, and what has been your experience? Is there anything else you’d like to see?

You can reply to my e-mail at or, even better, post a comment on the blog.

I look forward to hearing from some of you!

All the best!

Diana Funtana
