On wikipedia I get valid and researched information related to the fields of my engineering studies. In the past I also used the site howstuffworks to understand technical processes.

It is very interesting your post.In fact you quoted some internet tools that I ´ve never been heard (TED & Linkedin). Usually I ´m not familiar with those internet tools and others as twiteer and facebook I don´t like. However others as google map / google translator and others traslator I like. I love to use google search and the Wikipedia encyclopedia. Thanks for your information. By the way thanks Harry for the new english traslator. I¨ll check it.Well Emilio I will read the next post.RegardsOrion from Panama Fri 19 Mar 2010 02:44:02 GMT+1 Nyambayar http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=77#comment17 Hello guys,Thank you for the posts. The article was quite interesting and useful. I always use Google, Youtube and Facebook too. The Google can be good friend to find out an information from the internet. And my another best friend is Wikipedia.org. It is free encyclopedia which is containing millions of articles in many languages. Almost all of it's article is created by volunteers around the world. This is a great place to read about a subject in neutral point of view.Best regards. Nyambayar, Mongolia.

Internet has a lot of usefuls for learning and searching what we want to know. But sometime people uses it as and entertainment more than for education.I also uses Facebook for keeping in touch with my friend. Whatever, i still think that there're strenght and weekness for using internet. It's depend on which way you use it for.Your dog is so cute. Thanks again Mon 15 Mar 2010 17:17:17 GMT+1 Paula Albocino http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=68#comment15 Hello Emilio,I loved this post of yours because I also think Social Media is a wonderful tool to be in touch with friends and professionals in my area. I use my twitter a lot, facebook, Orkut and I have my personal blog as well. It's really a great way to exchange ideas and information about everything you are interested about.I also use Internet to study English. Some websites can help you a lot and it's so different than it was when I started studying English 15 years ago! I wish I had the same tools we have nowadays. Some websites such as www.bbc.co.uk, [Unsuitable/Broken URL removed by Moderator], www.livemocha.com and so on are really amazing. I also loved your comment about www.ted.com. I use this website a lot to improve my listening in English. The last speech I heard was from Steve Jobs, I recommend everyone to watch it.Keep blogging and regards from Brazil!Paula Mon 15 Mar 2010 12:20:50 GMT+1 Natalie http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=63#comment14 Well,well, I'm looking at the photo and asking myself whose blog I've been reading. Is it Emilio's blog or Urko's one? Your dog is funny! I can't see him without a smile.The Internet is really good fun. Now I'm living a long distance from my native town, that's why I use SkyNet. I can not only talk to my relatives and friends but see them. It's great! I use the Internet to make a lot of payments, to buy all kinds of tickets. I prefore read news in the Internet and etc. Buy, Natalie Mon 15 Mar 2010 10:31:56 GMT+1 Tienhoa http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=59#comment13 Hi Emilio,I have access to the internet since the year of 2000, however I just use the web to read news as well as find information about my research on chemical engineering on the search engine Google. On the one hand, I'm not familiar with internet resources such as Twitter, Facebook etc. so far. On the other hand, I think such resources are very useful for writing diary, sharing information and making friend in the world. In addition, writing on the Facebook and Twitter is one of the best ways to improve English writing skill. From now on, I try to learn how to use them to explore their benefits. Hopefully getting in touch with you and all friends in this blog to exchange information about various subjects in our life.Regards,Tienhoa, Vietnam Mon 15 Mar 2010 03:38:19 GMT+1 al awaid http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=54#comment12 Hi, Emilio.actually, i am very taken with your experience in computers which i know just a little bit about them. in fact, i use google, yahoo and youtube for my researching, but i did not never use the others facebook and twitter and etc.but, i intend totry to use them.looking for your responding,bye.

Looking up new English words is almost one of my favourite habbits that I do on daily bases, it's Cambridge online dictionary that I encourage you to try; it gives you an examples of how to use a certain verb or a word in a sentense in addition to its correct pronounciation. Here's the link: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/I will tell you about my story when I couldn't understand one single word, in English, when a black cub driver was talking to me in my way to Charring cross / central London - it's be about cockney slang which I believe you're not in urgent need to learn it at all.I do believe that to learn better one's got to learn more about the culture of people speaking a particular language, if you've got time for that I'd recommend trying to find and buy "Watching the English" by Kate Fox; a marvelous anthropologist that can share lots about the English culture and social behaves.I hope that you're going to read my comment and perhaps find your way to the heart of this language - maybe you'd fall for 'her' like I do enjoy being an international citizen one day lol.best regards ... ta ta fer now me mate Fri 12 Mar 2010 22:29:05 GMT+1 sonia durao http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/03/how-do-you-use-internet.shtml?page=45#comment10 I liked very much to learn about internet.

I use familiar simplest methods in internet: google and some definite websites with the version text only and e-mail, usually it's all i need to my work. Neither twister nor facebook and etc.I have a question to you as the IT-specialist : i heard soon everyone apparently will have own online code given once and for all. I think, that's excellent idea. Could you tell me, what is your opinion about the point? Thanks.Regards,Emat.

I most often use internet for researching articles, using bbc blog and emailing. I also use Youtube occasionally and rarely use facebook. Use of google is amazing, you can almost find anything on google. Two things that you mentioned in your message Linkedin and TED which I haven't tried yet but intend to try them, they sound interesting. Have a good day. Negge from N.
