Think in English, Change your Facebook Account to English

Another great way to improve your knowledge of English could be as simple as connecting to a social network like Facebook, but using it in English. For instance, you can change your default language from your mother tongue (in this post we’re using Spanish as an example) to English to learn new words and expressions that might come up from Facebook’s web application.

So, let's see how to set up your account in English:

1. First of all go to Facebook.com and log in. Once there click on Cuenta:

account

2. Click on Configuración de la cuenta option:

account configuration

3. Go to the Idioma tab and choose English (US) or English (UK), whatever you prefer, from the combo box:

facebook language

4. After doing this all Facebook's options will be shown in English. Now go to Home to see the changes on your wall:

facebook in English

5. Happy practicing with your English :)

Hi,

I came across your site whilst on the internet and wondered whether you may be interested in using our videos on your site. We offer English lessons over the internet and are in the process of building up a free video resource. A few examples of our videos can be found below:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGb1EE8LWDE (common mistakes - to have)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IY5MJwsMs6Y (example class)

If you would like us to produce some videos tailored towards your site, let us know. We aim to complete a number of different series of videos over the coming weeks on all the tenses and common mistakes in English.

Thank you for your time.
