Microblogs

We know you enjoy the main blog entries, but we also understand that you don’t always have time to read a full one, so we provide bite-sized snippets of information, specifically aimed at teachers and learners of English, in the Learn English microblog.

Frequent microblogs

In frequent microblog posts we share interesting ELT facts, comment on news stories and developments in the ELT world, and pose questions about the realities of learning English. We also investigate which words you’ve been looking up in the Macmillan Dictionary as part of your teaching or learning, and why.

The microblog sits on the right hand side of the blog (just look for the red microblog speech bubble), but you can also access the posts from the Learn English Live English Love English lists at the top of the page, and via the ‘Category’ and ‘Posts by Author’ links down the right hand side.

Archive

There’s a full archive of microblog posts available here, but if you’d like to just sample a few, why not try these:

Optical illusions
In a league of our own
Ten out of ten is not enough
Tricks of the trade
Order in the classroom

We hope you enjoy the Macmillan Dictionary microblogs!
