Belmont International English website last updated July 7,
Online classes begin August 31
It is now official.
All in person classes are cancelled for the remainder of the year. We hope to resume
normal classes in January, but the future is uncertain. Online classes for Belmont International English on Zoom will
follow as closely as possible our normal teaching format. We will meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 to 11
am. If you would like to join us, go to the registration page and register. There is no cost to attend these sessions.
Preference will be given to students in our geographic area, but if we have room, anyone who wants to participate may join.
There will be some homework. We will read a book and discuss each chapter, and we will have some required written homework.
Those who show interest by regular attendance and regular performance of homework will be invited to continue. Online
instruction is new to me, and there will necessarily be some experimentation. I value your feedback, and I'll try to
improve your experience as we progress together.
Best wishes. Stay healthy.

Cheaper by the Dozen
I enjoyed reading Parnassus on Wheels with you. Our next boook is Cheaper by
the Dozen. It is a humorous book about a couple, both efficiency engineers, who had twelve children. It was
written by two of the actual children, Frank Gilbreth, Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. I think you'll enjoy it.
We'll talk about the first three chapters on Tuesday. There is a lnk below to the entire text in .pdf format.

He and Abraham Lincoln were contemporaries. Both are heros of mine.
Juárez was president of México while Linclon was president of the United States. Such a pity that these
two great men never met. Click below to read more about this remarkable man.
