Getting the hang of a new language is tough. As someone attempting to re-learn French, I can say this without absolute certainty. Lucky for students like myself, technology is a huge help. It makes it easier to hear a native speaker ‘pronounce’ something for you. It lets you Skype with people in the country whose language you’re attempting to master.
The goal of the Rich Internet Applications project is to create tools that are informed by language acquisition research, and engage language learners in active learning. Using our Rich Internet Applications toolset, incorporating speaking and listening into your language class is easier and more flexible than ever! The tools can be used in many different ways: for in-class activities, student projects, homework, or assessment.
