Last month, I spoke about how to use Twitter to learn English. This was a popular topic for our blog readers, so today; we are going to look at how to use Facebook to learn English.
1) Groups and pages
Facebook has lots of groups and pages that can connect you to other English learners and offer you free practical lessons to help you with all aspects of English learning.
Here are a few of my personal favorites:
Kaplan International Colleges: As this is our own page, I couldn’t help but mention it! Our Facebook page has a variety of fun material to help English learners including our blog posts, word games and interesting infographics.
Learn English – British Council: This is a great page for learning English skills for all types of situations, from improving your CV to building your vocabulary.
Learn English as a second language: This page offers lots of language tips including idioms word games and grammar practices.
Fluency MC – I introduced Fluency MC, aka, Jason R Levine in last month’s post, as he also has an awesome Twitter account. Fluency MC uses really fun and innovative ways to teach English to foreign students, including rap videos!
2) Practice posting your status
You can practice simple English by posting things that are happening to you, which is a great way to practice speaking in the first person. Asking questions is a great way to practice English. Then, your friends can respond back to you and you can start a conversation online. This also means that lots of people can join in the conversation with you!
