How did "It's EFL Time" get its name?

I started “It's EFL Time!” in 2019, after I had already been tutoring in English as a Foreign Language for 4 years. Regularly, when I arrived to a lesson, I heard is an excited, “It’s time!” or “Time for English!” Then at the close of a lesson, I often heard, “Time is done?” or “Time goes quickly!” So, the comment about TIME consistently was paired with English being a Foreign Language;EFL. Therefore, “It’s EFL Time!” was born as the natural, distinct, logical and joyful name!

About Me… It's EFL Time! Teacher: Dinalynn

Professionally, I have worked as a Speech Language Pathologist in the public schools since 1992. I received my Bachelors of Applied Science from the University of Minnesota Duluth, in Communication Disorders in 1991. During my time at UMD, I studied abroad at the University of Birmingham, England, for one year. I have held a current Minnesota teaching license since 1991, in the area of Educational Speech Language Pathology, for level birth- 21 years. A myriad of graduate courses and continuing education courses have been credited from Minnesota State Universities: Mankato & Moorhead, University of Minnesota: Twin Cities & Rochester, Augustana College in South Dakota, and University of Phoenix, Arizona.

I received an International Diploma in English Language Teaching, IDELT Online, in April 2015, through BridgeTEFL, USA, with graduate credit recognition from University of Northern Colorado, in May 2015. I gained skills as a TEFL tutor, (Teacher of English as a Foreign Language tutor), since 2016.

james"I am proud and happy to write you my gratitude. I write because I know English after the course you did for me, I understand others better. Now that I can make sentences and others understand me, you've learned a lot of great new words to help me communicate after my heart surgery in Florida, Orlando. I'm happy with the way you always corrected me when I said it was bad and you showed me a lot of wonderful things that made me think better. I am happy to share with my friends all the wonderful steps of my arrival in Haiti. I hope God cares about you and your family."
