Exploring Youtubers' Accents

Hello there!
As an introduction to an upcoming blogpost series in which we are going to be exploring some Youtubers' Accents, this post presents the perspectives from which it is interesting to talk about youtubers' accents in CuriousEnglishOnline. Among other things, today we will cover: (1) why English learners should watch native speakers on YouTube and how can it help them to improve greatly, especially when finding and creating an Identity in a Second Language; and (2) why YouTube is a very convenient tool from the point of view of accent and language in general observation and study. To top it all, I am going to tell you how you can participate in this blogpost series!

Finding your Identity in a Second Language (L2)

Hello there!
If you were looking for something to read in this Bank Holiday here you have, in my opinion, an interesting and hopefully helpful post. Today we will be talking about finding your identity in a Second Language (or Foreign Language, if that is your case): why you should create this identity and how to do it, as well as some aspects to take into consideration. This topic is also related to a frequently visited post which you readers seem to have liked called The Power of being an English Learner, so perhaps you would find it interesting too, in case you have not read it yet.
