Preferably the hand-created rather than computer-generated ones and preferably the ones marked 'hard' or 'fiendish'!
That should be pretty obvious from this website! I'm currently working most on Mandarin Chinese.
Mainly nature photography, but also travel and architecture. Please feel welcome to browse the photos in the gallery.
Although I am developing an intense dislike of economy-class air-travel, I enjoy seeing new places, particularly in Asia and Europe. Favourite places are Germany, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Another one that should be obvious. Apart from this website, I have created class websites for IML classes and an extensive Intranet site for West Moreton Anglican College, where I taught German for 14 years. I'm self-taught with computers, and learn best by 'mucking around' and when stuck, 'googling' to see if someone else has a solution. They almost always have!
