Learning languages on the Web [list of links] | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "To anyone who has ever used or heard about Rosetta Stone or Mocha Languages, it is clear how advances in technology have revolutionized language learning. The days of poring over conjugation tables and sifting through flashcards are over. It is now possible for the driven student to chat with native speakers via Skype, or submit their pronunciation of Arabic to collective critique on You-Tube; in this way one can become proficient or even fluent in the target language—the language one is learning to speak—without ever setting foot in the country where that language is spoken.

 

Those who fork over the money for the more sophisticated, fee-based learning tools see them as quite affordable compared to the high cost of college and university language courses. But more affordable still are the free, but lesser known learning tools found on the Web. The following pages contain a selective list of freely available Internet resources for students, scholars, and the general public."

sarspri's insight:

Categories include Getting Started, Reference Tools, Broadcasts and Podcasts, TV as Teacher, and Less Commonly Taught Languages.

What is Linguistics? || Univ of Sheffield

What is Linguistics? || Univ of Sheffield | Learning technologies resources | Scoop.it

[Excerpt]: "AllAboutLinguistics.com was created by first-year linguistics students at the University of Sheffield, supported by staff in the School of English Literature, Language and Linguistics. 

 The website formed part of the students assessment, after they completed a course called Introduction to Linguistics, and it aims to share the knowledge they gained from this module with anyone outside the University who is interested in language and its study - especially A-Level students thinking of going on to study linguistics at University. We asked students to build the site because as beginners in linguistics themselves, they were in a good position to help explain the discipline to you. 

By exploring this site, you will:

discover the discipline of linguistics and find out what linguists dodeepen your knowledge of language study – perhaps giving you a head start on your English Language courseworkgain an insight into the varied range of opportunities a degree in English Language and Linguistics can offerWe hope you will enjoy your journey into linguistics as you explore the site."
