Recorded on 12 June 2014, this webinar with Jo Budden takes a look behind the scenes of the LearnEnglish Teens website and focuses on its growing community. Jo looks at how the site is kept safe and offers a supportive environment to its users. She examines how and why teenagers interact and exchange ideas on the site and explores the language learning opportunities that this provides. She also looks at what else the teenagers are learning, apart from English, by communicating with their peers from around the world.
