Google Blogsearch

The principles of sentence hacking and using the SRS as a study method, and strongly influenced by this AMAZINGLY GENIUS idea by a handsome guy in Japan, suggests using Twitter as a dictionary and source for original L2 sentences. Genius.

Anyway, I have a further extension on this great idea provided through Google. I just found this out today, but Google now offers Blog Searching.

So what does this mean for you as a adventurous young L2 learner? Simply take the Twitter method mentioned above, but search full blog entries! You’ll find more interesting articles than those from a regular Google search, and from native speakers expressing themselves in a natural way.

Get Google Blogging (Gloggling? Gblogging? eh~just go have fun)!

  1. Thanks for the mention, and nice blog!

    Actually, I have been combining Google’s blog search with Google Reader to seek out some cool new L2 blogs.

    Anything I find I just add into Reader on a trial basis, to see if I end up liking it or not. High turnover, as the AJATT-thinking goes…

    1. Thanks for your comment!

      Blogs are really kind of hit or miss I’ve found, but luckily in Taiwan there’s a lot of food-related blogs, and I love food (as my growing stomach is proving). That blog search is great though 😀
