Why join a conversation?
The idea that triggered creating #occeoic conversations was to provide an opportunity to use English and engage in conversations even outside the classroom. Why not take part in a network of language learners who can share information, anecdotes and opinions about diverse topics?
It’s free. There is no schedule. No need to confirm attendance.
How to take part?
1_ Do you have a twitter account?
#occeoic is the hashtag that will identify the conversations that originate in this blog. If you want to follow the conversation suggested all you have to do is:
- Log in to twitter with your twitter account.
- Search the conversation by clicking on the hashtagged #occeoic; or tweet something without forgetting to include #occeoic.
- Once you have found the conversation you can post your own ideas, (140-character messages). You can also reply to other people’s tweets or simply follow the thread of the conversation.
- Feel free to share media (images and videos) that you feel may contribute to the conversation.
