What Can You Use the Forums for?
To send in your questions: It's better for your teacher you send them to the forum, so that when she answers more people can profit from that work. Also, other people can answer too, or make comments.
To practice writing
To read stuff in English and learn about the topics discussed
To learn vocabulary, grammar, things about different cultures - if somebody asks a question, feel free to answer (I won't unless NOBODY tries to answer! - boo!).
To learn how to use ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) and their jargon.
To learn about people and the world
To send in your feedback, comments and suggestions
To share your knowledge
To have fun communicating with other people
To register & post your first message, use the TP WebQuest called Using the TP Forum
