Moderator:

 

 

David Winet got started teaching English when he was 15 in Switzerland and a neighbor hired him to teach her reluctant son. Complete disaster! However, since then he has learned a few tricks and has taught ESL in France and California for many years. He got interested in email back in the early 90s and realized it might be a good way to teach English. Starting in 1993 with a former student who had returned to Germany from the U.S.,Dave began teaching "English by Email", possibly the first Internet-based ESL class. When graphical browsers came into being, Dave created StudyCom English for Internet (http://www.study.com), a free online school and research project where real teachers could connect with real students to study and use English, which continues to this day to provide students with free online ESL lessons with live teachers.
