All English Learners Should Have a Blog
It’s 2008 and it’s time to think about new and different ways of improving your English via the Internet and using some of the great new technologies that are available.
Here’s why blogging is a good idea for ESL students:
1 It is a great habit to get writing and to write something new every day or every week. Don’t worry about English mistakes – many people using English on the Internet are speakers of English as a Second Language.
2 You can make friends and share your thoughts with the whole world.
3 If you have a teacher or someone who is willing, they can easily access you writing and correct it or give you tips on how to write better.
4 Best of all, it’s free and easy. You can get a blog up and running in minutes at blogspot.com.
