Let your students journey into the foreign language and its culture 140 characters at a time! Twitter provides the platform for authentic language and, when applied in and/or outside of the classroom, target language use becomes self-perpetuating and generative. Introduce Twitter to your classroom so students can interpret input, produce output and engage in conversations. Microblogging on Twitter helps motivate language learners to communicate more frequently in the language because this social networking tool is always on, always connected—accessible via web, text, mobile applications, and more. Join the microblogging expedition (create your own account on http://twitter.com) and explore the creation of a language learning community with your students and native speakers.
