Twitter recruitment

Why not join me on Twitter? I think it is a useful tool for learning English and you never know, you might get to like it.

The tweets (messages) can only be 140 characters long, so you won't be overwhelmed by vocabulary and it won't take you long to write something.

I sometimes write silly tweets about my day:

You can reply to any of my tweets. If you write a tweet of your own, I will reply.




I sometimes retweet:




I'd like to tweet regular #PV1 (Phrasal Verbs), #headlines1, #funidioms1, #funwords1, #FCE exam questions ...






So sign up to Twitter and start following me (and others). 

If you have any questions, just ask.

Hi Graham,

I follow you on Twitter as much as my time lets me. I enjoy Reading your funny answers to my comment. Sometime, you called me clumsy and, other time, you said oh my God! In both cases I don’t know why. I’m an earnest student but you don’t understand me. I’m sure that my partner Montse agrees with my impartial opinion. Montse is a swot, always she has been, so she realizes it is true. Where are you Montse? You must come back on this blog. Auld Lang Syne.

See you.

Hi José,

You are one of just a few students who does what I suggest.

Which of the listenings from BBC Learning English did you do?

Did you understand all the tweets in this post?

Hi Graham,

Thank you very much. I’m sure I’m going to bear fruit because I have a great teacher. Who is the best English teacher in the world?
Usually I listen 6 minute English from BBC, if I have time. I like it.
I think I understand all the tweets in this post.
The first is on the restaurant matritum, you said that it was deafeningly quiet when it was normally teeming with people on a holiday. I don’t want to talk about wine because you tell me that I’m persistent.
The second is on the hangover when Scottish people get up in Scotland and when they arrive in Madrid turn out to be a positive one.
The third is on courses to learn English, but I have clicked it and I haven't found any topic, sorry.
The fourth is on sexy ads are market declines but I find no the page.
The fifth, slow runner and speak up.
The sixth, he gets a kick out of and (I’m not sure) avoidance.
The seventh, doubtful=undecided.
The eighth is on doodles and my doodle is the English Parliament because I wish would speak English.
At the end of this long post, may be as long as.

See you.

Hi José,

I have finished work earlier today so I've poured myself a drink and psyched myself up to reply to your comment. :D


These tweets are old. I think that's why the links don't work.



Who is the best English teacher in the world? I am, aren't I?

I usually listen to 6 minute English from the BBC if I have time. I like it.


The second is on the hangover when Scottish people get up in Scotland and when they arrive in Madrid it turns out to be a positive one. (I don't think I was talking about hangovers)

The third is on courses to learn English, but I have clicked on it and I haven't found any topic, sorry. (Click on ow.ly/aSvJb - you'll find a puzzle)

The fourth is on sexy ads as market declines but I find no page.

The fifth, slow down and speak up.

The sixth, he gets a kick out of and (I’m not sure) avoidance. No! The ~ symbol = the main word; in this case "buzz". So - He gets a buzz out of driving fast and Travelling gives me a buzz.

The seventh, doubtful / I am in two minds = undecided.

The eighth is on doodles and my doodle is of the English Parliament because I wish I could speak English. (Grrrr - you said that you knew how to use "wish")

At the end of this long post; it may be "as long as". Yes!

Well done!
