Review for The Office of Letters and Light, Berkeley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I used NaNoWriMo in a Japaneses University setting. It was incredible for me to see the effects of the program (with the online and printed support offered by the Office of Letters and Light). I was introduced to NaNoWriMo by a teacher in Turkey, and I am still discovering the benefits for second language learners. Thanks to this organization, my students were able to express their ideas in English and feedback across the board was that students realized they loved to write, and became more motivated to continue learning English. Thank you!
