Technology for TBLT: Examples of virtual worlds for language learning

University of Hawai'i Spanish professor Marta Gonzalez-Lloret explains the principles of task-based language teaching (TBLT) and gives examples of technology use for language learners such as virtual and synthetic worlds (Second Life, World of Warcraft).

 

See a demonstration of her collaborative environment for Spanish learners "En busca de Esmeraldes" and another virtual environment for an ESP course for health professionals, plus a Chinese online course

"Free online foreign language lessons"

 

Shona Whyte:

Suspicious as usual, I checked out this site.  Not clear who is behind it, but it does seem to be completely free and the sound etc works fine.  I checked English for French beginners (leçon de Anglaise (sic)) - behaviourist approach with exercises for listening and repeating, matching phrases with their translation equivalents, and chances to test yourself.  Not my first choice for learning a language, but it may suit some.
