Dave's ESL Cafe - www.daveseslcafe.com 

I've tried to make the Cafe colorful, fun, interactive, and friendly. There is also a lot of "Dave Sperling" in each and every creation, so you can see a lot of me throughout the Cafe. In addition, I spend several hours a day maintaining the Cafe, so I think you can always feel that there is a real human being involved. I've also had the wonderful opportunity to present my work all around the world, so I've met hundreds of fans face to face. Most importantly, I listen to each and every suggestion.
