Laura Gomez published an interesting article in Mashable “How to Learn and Practice Languages Using Social Media.
Gomez’s article talks about language learning in general, not just English. She highlights specific social media sites that are useful for language learners, as well as teachers.
As social media is an umbrella term that covers several types of media, Gomez divides the social media into 4 categories:
Under each of these categories she highlights several websites that could be useful for language teachers in teaching and in assigning to their students for out of class work. Moreover, these sites could serve as models for teachers on how to set up their own sites.
Give her article a look and don’t forget to scroll down and read the comments. There are also several other recommendations.
