    The strengths:
    In my opinion, the blog has some strength.:
    1. It has good display, there is have goog animation. It can make the students interesting in that topic.
    2. The material is quite interesting. It has the audio, it has the explanation about the kinds of the text itself.
    3. She also display some question about the material, so students can do her question.


    Besides the strength, this blog is also has its weakness. She doesn’t explain where students answer, and how they know that their answer is right or wrong.Beside it, the blog is limited on the service. It cannot do on that page.


    I think, it will be better if you give the more information about how students answer and make sure that their answer is correct or not.

    Overall rate (1-10)
    For these blog, I will give 7. Congratulation..
