I hope I'm posting this in the right area. Sorry in advance if I'm not.
But, Are there any English language learner's using Twitter to learn English? I think it would be a powerful tool to ask questions and talk to other language learner's but I haven't found a lot of learners on Twitter yet.
If you do use Twitter to learn English or another language, how do you use it? and is it very useful?
I do not use Twitter of any reason, but I could offer you this.
There is a very good website for learning any of about 20 foreign languages on which you can communicate socially. It is <Livemocha.com>. I can't recommend it enough.
I wasn't really recommended Twitter be used as your sole source of language, just a way to read English and practice making quick sentences. I can imagine it being a little difficult because I've tried using it Japanese before with mixed results, but I've heard of classes using it to ask questions to native speakers or specialists and getting answers.
I think it would just be like conversation practice, only a little bit more prepared.
I heard people talking so much about Twitter so when I used it I didn't really like it,but I think the best way to learn the language is through studying and practicing,you can either practice while speaking to someone or typing emails and posts on forums.
You should most of all have a good repertoire of vocabulary that will allow you to communicate without using vocabulary inadequately,you can memorize The 1000 sheet of most common words,it will help so much,you can find it on (www.about.com)
