Good Friday afternoon from Singapore!
I'm writing this blog post to let you know that I have just uploaded a new video on YouTube, after a hiatus of more than one year.
Please check out this video:
In this video, I am talking about my favorite method of learning French, which is to post French tweets on Twitter, using new words and expressions to continually improve my French.
For my French learning, I have shifted my focus from the input to the output, and I have been making conscious efforts to express myself in French by means of micro-blogging.
It's been roughly three months since I began tweeting in French, and I really love it. I feel that I can now express myself in French far better than a year ago, despite the fact that my vocabulary hasn't grown that much.
My intention is to keep developing my ability for output for the foreseeable future. I'm not in a hurry to expand my French vocabulary, as I plan to do it after I've achieved a certain degree of fluency in the language.
Also, as I've mentioned in this video, I would like to shoot more short videos going forward, especially in English, to improve my presentation skills.
I have to admit that my English accent isn't that spectacular (wearing dental braces does not help much either), but watching myself in the video enables me to analyze more objectively what my English pronunciation issues are, and what can possibly be done to improve my delivery, so I still stand to benefit from this video, albeit a bit embarrassing.
Anyway, I think it's a good thing that I've decided to become active again on YouTube, and I'd like to keep the momentum going.
For those of you who haven't yet watched my videos, please do so and let me know what you think. Your inputs are really valuable!
Thank you for your attention, and I wish all of you a nice weekend!
