‘Fair trade’ solution to learning a new language

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:20 am

By Dave Lee, BBC World Service

They say the best way to learn a language is to get stuck in, immersing yourself in a culture in a way that means you have no choice other than to adapt. Human interactions, with all the real life quirks which make language so interesting, are essential if you are to become fluent.I think these kinds of virtual environments are really great, really good. Kids in school respond very well to these sorts of approaches.” -Linda Parker, Association for Language Learning

In the past, you would have to fly out to various corners of the world to achieve such a level of immersion. But now, in our ever-shrinking, networked world, the chance to learn new languages direct from the communities that speak it naturally is just a few clicks away.
