Have any of you started to use Facebook yet? If you haven’t started yet, I just wanted to let you know it’s another great place, like Twitter, to practice your English.
There are lots of ways to utilize Facebook, so you can practice English. Below are three ways to learn English on Facebook.
1. You can connect to other English learners through joining groups and pages.
Here are a few pages to ‘like':
The English Guru – This is my Facebook page. I try to engage people by having interactive conversations. I also post links to aid you with your English learning.
Livemocha – I just love Live mocha’s website. Their page on Facebook is a great resource as well.
EnglishBrnoCZ – Nina posts a lot of great links, tips, and videos that will help you in your English learning journey.
2. Posting your status
You can post things that are happening to you that are important, funny, interesting, etc. Then, your friends can respond back to you and you can have a conversation. Having a conversation on Facebook is nice because you can see the entire conversation and multiple people can join in the fun.
3. Connecting and reconnecting to English speaking friends
You can connect to your Twitter friends and other friends who speak English on Facebook. You can talk with your friends via Facebook email, IMs, posting on their wall or replying to their statuses.
All in all, Facebook is a great social media tool, not only to find long lost friends, but a great place to make new friends and practice English.
