  1. This website is extremely valuable to me. The videos are especially helpful as I am a distance student, and being able to hear and watch, as well as read, adds an important dimension to my learning experience. (I did notice one little typo on the videos: Michael Halliday had an ‘o’ jump into his surname.) As I gear up for the grammar and phonology module, those sections in this website have helped me to get my footing before jumping in.
