Antonio - I'm interested in your use of 'shortly' in the sentence, 'The most important [place] has surely been ‘Certosa di Padula’, which I’m going to shortly talk about.' One of the things that is a bit more difficult (though not impossible!) in a blog, compared to a face-to-face classroom, is checking what a student means to say.
In the sentence I mention, did you mean that you will talk about Certosa di Padula soon or in just a few words? Although my dictionary is not very clear on this point, I think that when we are talking about words (a description, a talk, a chat, a paragraph etc.), 'shortly' means 'soon, in a little time'. 'Briefly', on the other hand, means 'in as few words as possible, not in detail'.
Giving feedback on writing is sometimes difficult when the teacher can't check the student's intended meaning. In a blog, it's up to the student to decide what to respond to. Face-to-face, it's a bit more difficult for the student to ignore the teacher's questions!!! I'd be interested to hear what you think are the advantages and disadvantages of learning via a blog.
Hope you've had a good day!
