Teaching beginners - language of SMS, blog, e-mail etc
Hi everyone
Here´s a new challenge for me this year: teaching reading & writing for the informal language of SMS, blog, e-mail, social media etc.
My target group: beginner middle aged female migrants (some will have survival English, some will have nil English.  They will be doing other R&W subjects with other teachers)
If you have any good links/ideas please send let me know (I´ve already seen the excellent resources here and will certainly be using them).

The Mobile Native Blog

these have text as well as audio
