What is #LINCchat?
This is a chat that occurs on Twitter every second Tuesday, with an occasional Friday chat, on topics related to LINC instruction. LINC is Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada, a program funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, which offers FREE language training across the country for permanent residents.
How does it work?
Anyone with a Twitter account can join in the chat by following the hashtag #LINCchat during the scheduled time. Moderators will lead the discussion by asking a series of questions. Anyone can reply to these questions by simply tweeting their thoughts or answers and using the #LINCchat hashtag in their tweet. You can learn more about Twitter and Twitter chats in this video:
What if I don’t have a Twitter account?
When is the next chat?
A schedule for future chats and topics along with summaries of past chats are posted on the Tutela Group for #LINCchat.
This initiative is under the direction of #LINCchat moderators: Nathan Hall (BC TEAL Board Member) and Svetlana Lupasco (TESL Toronto Executive Member)
