  1. I am setting up a Flipgrid full of topics/questions in which I will tweet out in hopes of lots of native speakers replying so students can have lots of various voices, input and responses to common topics. I already did it with one topic I’m so glad Dr. Barcroft confirmed this idea! Motivation to keep it going. https://flipgrid.com/e5bkgjo
