Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Welcome to the website for Michael & Vivian Krigline

If you are teaching English, learning English, interested in China or want to see photos from China or the USA, then you have come to the right place!

Michael & Vivian Krigline, along with son Andrew (visiting for Christmas 2011, from his university in Ohio); beautiful Xiamen is in the background, with Xiamen University's tallest building right in the center. Michael and Vivian became grandparents in December 2010, and again in June 2012!

  See "What is new?"

on the bottom of our "current update" page

for recent changes.


This website is too complicated (over 150 pages), but here are the main sections:


Our "current update" shows what we've been doing recently, and its "What is new?" section links you to recent changes.


Resources has resources for English learners and teachers, including movie study guides and holiday handouts; (under it) Student Connection gives you an index of things my students might be looking for.


Photos has lots of photo album pages (in blogs, these are now called "galleries")


Links has links I use frequently, and Learner Links can take you to lots of places on line to practice your English.


Things We've Written has inspiring and informative articles. You'll also find EFL articles in the sub-menu under Student Connection.


Special Features has fun stuff like free wallpaper and a link to my music.


Real World has resources related to my textbook: Successful Writing for the Real World.


In amongst those main pages you'll find lots of treasures, but people say my home page was too gaudy when I listed them, so you'll just have to find them yourself! (Try the search box!)


Final notes: Since being a web-master is a VERY part-time hobby, please be patient if links don't work or if things are out of date! And if you want to see Vivian's scrapbook, try www.chinadollscrapping.weebly.com or http://www.scrapbookflair.com/china_doll. Andrew Krigline's website: akrigline.com

About us: This is the personal website of the Krigline family: Americans who have been "teaching and learning" in China since 2000. All photos and materials are 2013 Michael Krigline unless otherwise noted. We maintain this site primarily for the benefit of our friends in China, and to provide our friends around the globe with a taste of China--in the hope of building greater understanding between the people of the West and the East. 


Regarding .CN: We have created a China-based version of the website so that the pages will load quicker for our students in China. See "use policy" for more information.
