THIS follows the last post.
The other article I read had an interesting point where a teacher often uses tweets to help her students learn French.
As with tweets and short messages (including the ones that we post in Facebook), students can take on the challenge to come up with the meanings of the messages they see.
As I have said some time ago, learn to use technology (as in computers/social networks) to advance your skills and knowledge. The world of knowledge is now at our fingertips.
Will we reach out and make good use of it?
That is for you and me to choose.
