Attn. California Schools

I have developed a series of language websites (16) for teachers and their
students throughout the world. I ask that you pass this information on to all
interested persons.

Web Link

Best Spanish Websites has grown to over 3,000,000 page visits and is #1 with
both Google and Yahoo (Web Link)

Note also a recent addition that is the Learning Games and Fun Activities site that
has been recently developed and is growing daily with visits.
