      Russ and all,
      The only way to learn to write is to write! Perhaps you should encourage
      your students to take part in my International Writing Exchange with
      classes of Japanese, French and Italian students? This might encourage
      them to write more correctly, particularly if the international students
      don't understand their writing. www.writeit.to/sys

      There are some resources to help students with their writing at
      http://www.writeit.fi/ruth/writeit-resources-grammar/
      and a site where they can meet other students at
      http://onlinelanguageservices.ning.com/
