Summer news

Hi Friends and Followers!

Instead of putting out a newsletter, I will now be posting on a monthly basis, or as things develop.

This summer activity was slower, but steady and I have a couple of interesting “firsts” to report.

For the first time France was not the #1 country for visitors. For the month of August the top 5 countries were: the United States, Canada, France, Brazil and Indonesia (a first for this country).

Also for the first time, Life Experiences was not the most popular video. In fact it was unseated by Booking a Flight. All five telephone English videos received the most views, so I guess someone was busy practising phone calls with their students. It’s nice to see other videos get more attention.

As you can see, views broke through 25,000 this summer, and as of today Diana Funtana ESL Productions has reached 26,000.

Today I’ve posted a new page: Short Grammar Lessons, and plan to add more each month. Here I’d really like your feedback.

Resources 4 Teaching is no longer operating, so I’ve set up My Store on the Teachers Pay Teachers website. Worksheets can be ordered there at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Diana-Funtana-Esl-Productions or from me directly.

Here’s wishing you a good start to the school year!

All the best,

Diana Funtana

July news

Hi Friends and Followers!

I just wanted to announce that this month views have broken through 25,000! Keep them coming!

Also, France has been unseated for the first time by the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Colombia in that order as the top county for views. Nevertheless, lots of views are still coming from France, and I can only say merci beaucoup!

Life Experiences remains the most popular video with Six O’Clock News in second place.

Resources 4 Teaching is temporarily off-line, so worksheets and lesson plans can be ordered by contacting me at dianafuntanaesl@gmail.com. I will also provide a price list.

Again, please feel free to post a comment and share your experience if you’ve worked with any of the videos. Also I’d appreciate it if you would “like” Diana Funtana ESL Productions on Facebook if you haven’t already.

Continue to have a great summer, and all the best,

June

Hi Friends and Followers,

As I announced last month, I’m not putting out a newsletter until September but just wanted to share some news. Two countries have entered the top 5 viewers this month: Australia and Thailand. It’s always nice to see that Diana Funtana is getting around.

Just a reminder to like Diana Funtana ESL Productions on Facebook and spread the word!

All the best, and have a super summer!

June newsletter

Hello Friends and Followers!

I won’t be publishing another newsletter probably until September. I hope to have some new stuff for you.

Things are moving along as usual with about 40 views per day on average, most of which are still from France. Love France and French teachers and learners!

The most popular video continues to be Life Experiences, and Act 1 the most frequently visited page.

Thanks again for following this blog, and please pass it on.

All the best,

Diana Funtana
