We teach kids to speak real Spanish. For Life

Successful First Language Chat on Twitter

Our first #LangChat on Twitter was a great success. Participants discussed the importance of communicative competence and the need to use effective research-based techniques to move students towards increased accuracy over time. Accuracy becomes more important in presentational situations, whereas the rest of the time, communication is the goal of language usage. Giving our students accurate, quality input is the most important thing we can do to build their target language skills.

I hope you’ll consider joining us for the next Twitter Chat on January 27th. Vote below to help us select the next topic.
