the free e Learn English Language newsletter
for Laura K. Lawless
Hello! I'm the editor and
webmaster for the e Learn English Language site.
Born and raised in Illinois, I happily escaped to California at the age of
20. I spent a couple years going to school and working in Monterey and
another 3˝ working, going to school, and goofing off in San José.
After living in Morocco for
2˝ years, I spent 4 years in Pennsylvania before moving to
for 9 months, and then - finally - to
I began attending Knox College in 1991, but transferred
Institute of International Studies after two years, where I received a BA in International Studies,
and then completed the first year of MIIS' MA program in translation and interpretation.
After a two-year hiatus, I spent a year studying French linguistics and literature at
San José State University.
I've worked as a ghostwriter and proofreader, and have been writing (books
and websites) in three languages since 1999.
I speak fluent French, conversational Spanish, and pidgin Darija
(Moroccan Arabic). I am a terrific cook (if I do say so myself),
very computer literate, and a certified Adult Education teacher in
the State of California. I can type about 85 words per minute (if
you allow me the backspace key for typos), read a
novel in an afternoon, "mirror-write" with both hands at
the same time, and wiggle my eyebrows separately. ;-)
I love language, and I love being able to share it via this
wonderful tool: the internet. I'm truly delighted to have the
opportunity to share my knowledge of and love for the English
language with you - I am working to turn this site into a comprehensive English language resource
for students and teachers.
Guided the Learn French at About
site since 1999, and I also write the sites
e Learn Spanish Language and
Veggie Table (vegetarian recipes
and info). I also do some freelance work as a translator
(French -» English and Spanish -» English), proofreader, and
I have written seven books.
