TwitterLearn Italian, Spanish and French begins on Monday 29 June and in the first eight week course we will be teaching you the basics of the language with daily tweets from @learnitalian @learnspanish or @learnfrench, accompanied by mini audio lessons available here on our site.
Each day we’ll be sending out four or five tweets which will include vocabulary, information and links to the audio materials on our site. Given that our learners are all across the world, we’ll be sending the tweets out during the day (starting 9am GMT) and then again during the night (starting 9pm GMT), in the hope that we can provide learning materials for everyone who wants to learn with us!
Each tweet will link to a daily audio lesson lasting just 1 minute 40 seconds in which we provide the pronunciation of the words and phrases covered in the tweets. These audio lessons can be listened to on our site.
This is “micro language-learning” – and there’s obviously a limit as to what we can cover in 140 characters or 01:40 audio programmes, but hopefully through the course you’ll learn the basics of what you need to know on a visit to a French, Italian or Spanish-speaking area of the world.
