Greetings, Simple English Fans!

I joined Simple English Wikipedia on Dec 17, 2006.

I've been using English Wikipedia as my main online source for general information for several years now. About a year ago I decided that reading Russian Wikipedia articles on topics that I already knew about would be a good way to improve my vocabulary and reading skills. After moving to Thailand last year, I began to read articles on Thai Wikipedia instead.

I wanted to tell my Thai students that there is more to do on the internet than just play games and chat. I told them about Wikipedia, a site where you could learn about almost any topic. However, I knew that the English would be too difficult for them.

I think Simple English Wikipedia is an excellent idea. It is so discouraging to try to read in a foreign language if the vocabulary of the text is too difficult. I hope that Simple English Wikipedia will be useful to my students and to all other English learners.

Knowledge should be easy to get.
