As the young people in these photos are demonstrating, the world is at our fingertips, and the World Wide Web is a remarkable resource.

Whether you are an old friend, former student, passing net surfer, or someone in between, this section of Krigline.com* can link you to some of our favorite places on line.

NOTES: Visiting websites can allow viruses into your computer. Be sure your anti-virus software is up to date! Since the web is constantly changing, it is impossible to keep up with broken links–if something doesn’t work, you might try to Google it! Also, many websites outside China do not always work inside China (where I used to teach); sorry if you can’t connect from your location. 

This page replaced Krigline.com/link.htm, or in China: http://www.krigline.com.cn/link.htm; our other websites are http://eflsuccess.com/www.chinadollscrapping.weebly.com and www.scrapbookflair.com/china_doll; our son’s website: Andrew Krigline’s website

News & Internet:

(unfortunately, many news and “Google-related” sites are blocked in China)


We like to work with instrumental music playing, but you’ll find all kinds of music (and more) at the following sites:

Links for English-Learners (at our other website):

Links for English teachers (plus those listed above “for students”):


Because we have spent over 15 years teaching in China, it should be no surprise that many of our resources were designed with Chinese students in mind. Here are some resources we found helpful while living in China.


There are LOTS of websites about America, but here are some that we have special connections to:


Every few years we seem to be looking for a new camera; here are some website I’ve found helpful.
  • Digital Photography review is very comprehensive and professional: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/. You’ll find some of the most in-depth reviews on the web, including “shutter lag” (the time between when you push the button and when the camera takes a photo–this is what I hate most about digital cameras). (I posted a review of the Canon A630 on that website)
  • One of best things about this UK website is a shutter lag comparison chart (but you can also navigate to good reviews, an advice section and more). http://www.cameras.co.uk
  • Additional sites with insightful reviews: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech.htm, www.steves-digicams.com, www.epinions.com/Digital_Cameras (I have posted a review of the Canon A630 on that website, too)
  • I’ve posted lots of photos from China, the USA and elsewhere on my old website: http://www.krigline.com/photos.htm. That page also lists the cameras we’ve used over the years.
