Quizlet

Quizlet is a wonderful study tool on the web.  Log onto quizlet.com to create a free account with an email address and password.  Start by creating a list of terms/definitions.  From here, Quizlet will generate printable flash cards, lists, games, and practice tests.  The practice tests are graded, so you can determine whether you have mastered the material or need to study more.  Additional features include, foreign languages, dictionary, images and audio.  Term lists can be saved and shared with classmates.  Access to already made lists are also available by topic.  Each list is filed separately, but can be added to or edited at any time.  Best of all, at the end of the term or school year, all of your work is waiting, neatly typed and organized for those cumulative midterm and final exams.

What's Cooking?: The Year of the Dragon

 

Happy Belated New Year!  Based on the lunar calendar, Chinese New Year came early this year on January 23, 2012.  The Year of the Dragon is considered very lucky especially on my father’s side where at least four generations of family members were born in the Year of the Dragon.  Our personalities seem to reflect this.  We are quite an intense lot; short-tempered, and passionate about things.
