New Facebook Community Page on Lifelong Language Learning
Many language teaching organizations, such as TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) and JALT (Japan Association of Language Teaching) are making use of Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking services to better connect with their members. Here’s a Facebook community page recently created for the Lifelong Language Learning Special Interest Group of JALT. Feel free to explore it.
