How can you take advantage of social networks to improve your English?

Today social networks are very important if we use them responsibly:


I use social networks to communicate via computer with people from other countries who handle
the language and can teach me to speak English as well as possible.
Virtual courses, which dictate the University, which through interactive programs and work can
practice English as well as news from other countries, which are subtitled.
Talking on the phone with people from other countries where English is spoken is another great
way to improve the language.
Through these social networks so well you can watch music videos, movies and books online, I
can improve my English, because listening several times to his pronunciation and translation, I'll
make a better understanding of vocabulary, pronunciation, verses, verbs.
