“ The use of blogs is a way to provide such motivation for reading in a language other than one’s mother tongue, through the interactive nature of the blog. One can read and also comment on what one reads in expectation of a little discussion and a quest for common interests and individual differences” (Yang,2009).
Blogs inspire personal writing.
They provide opportunities to broaden knowledge.
Blogs provide a place for hyperlinks. This gives teachers a place to post assignments and record information.
“ Blogs can be treated as virtual language classrooms. People from all over the world can share opinions and express ideas by using a language they all understand. Language teachers can use blogs as discussion forums to increase time and opportunities for students to learn the target language”( Yang, 2009).
I would definitely use blogs in my classroom because it brings classrooms closer together and helps with most communication barriers.
