  Blogs for developing language skills

One of my friends has commented on my not perfect English and suggested her help for improving it. She is going to start Radio blog, so I think about the following:

  • She makes a special category, which is not visible in her blog, but has an RSS feed.
  • Then she uses this category to comment on my posts pointing to errors and suggesting improvements.
  • I subscribe to this RSS, get my personal feedback and correct posts.

Implications:

For me it should be more effective than any course or private lesson: no stupid exercises, but just-in-time feedback to improve my writing.

This could be a service that someone can provide for bloggers. Personally, I wouldn’t mind to pay a bit for it.

For multinational companies this could be a solution to help their employees developing language skills and overcoming fears of writing in foreign language.
