Learn A Language, 140 Characters At A Time (GIJN)

Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) announced two Twitter feeds today:

@gijnArabic

@gijnRu

To complement:

@gijn

@gijnAfrica

@gijnCh

@gijnEs

The GIJN Twitter feed expansion prompted me to think of its feeds as part of a language learning effort.

I doubt you would find classic literature quoted in tweets but that’s rare these days outside of classrooms.

Certainly not common in tweets from political leaders. 😉

From their about page:

The Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) is an international association of nonprofit organizations that support, promote, and produce investigative journalism. GIJN holds conferences, conducts trainings, provides resources and consulting, and encourages the creation of similar nonprofit groups. It was founded in 2003 when more than 300 journalists from around the world gathered for the second Global Investigative Journalism Conference in Copenhagen. Since then it has grown to 145 member organizations in 62 countries.

If you don’t know the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN), pay them a visit. You will like what you find.
