What do my students think?

I am hoping that everybody likes the class so far. We are learning new things about how to use the net to practice English. But I am worried that some students may feel the class does not have a clear structure. Maybe they don't know enough about what we are going to do. Like, "What is the point of the class?" or "What are we going to do next?"
I hope I can explain that today. And I hope that my students will be honest and tell me what they think.

To my students: I hope this page gives you some ideas about how you can use the internet to introduce yourself and interact with other people. Please tell me what you think.
I want this class to be useful for you.

To others viewing my blog: this blog is an experimental one, as I am new to blogging. I hope to show my English students in Japan the various possibilities of the net for practicing a language while communicating online.

Introduction

Hello!
This is my second time in Japan. I was in Japan from 1993 to 2000. I lived in Hiroshima and Kobe. No, I was not in Kobe at the time of the Hanshin earthquake! (Luckily) For seven years, I taught English to both children and adults at various schools.

The things I like most about Japan are: sumo, teaching, temples, gardens, looking at Mt. Fuji, and meeting new people. My favorite Japanese foods are: tempura, miso soup, tempura, and okonomiyaki!

More later!
