Do you use BurlingtonEnglish and would love some creative ideas from others who use it? Have you thought about BurlingtonEnglish but aren’t quite sure what it’s all about? If you have these questions or others, please join us for this open and interactive session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to a panel of three Massachusetts ESOL instructors who have been successful in using BurlingtonEnglish.
