After my last post on how I’m learning Spanish (and now Portuguese too) on Twitter (my language goals for the summer!), in Spanish I thanked a number of people who had retweeted my blog post. Of course, there was an error in my tweet and I had two friends advise me of them, in two different ways…one in a direct message explicitly stating my error, the other in a reply message using a recast to note my error.
How do others approach error correction on Twitter? This is fundamental to me as a language instructor and I wonder what others do too!
Thanks for your anticipated feedback :)
